Writeup from MB 104:

Northwest Africa 10396 (NWA 10396)

North West Africa

Purchased: 2014 Mar

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CK4)

Classification: The sample consists of about 50% well-defined chondrule and chondrule fragments and 50% of matrix and opaques. Among the opaques abundant magnetite is observed. The mean composition of olivine is Fa 1.7, which also contains NiO (0-3-0.6 wt%). All these observations support the CK classification. The olivines show undulatory extinction indicating a S2 shock degree classification. The sample is heavily weathered and most sulfides have been destroyed.
