Antarctica

Find: 2014 Nov 16

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CM2)

Petrography: The section consists of relatively small chondrules (~16 vol %, ~<100 μm to ~1.6 mm in diameter, the average size of chondrule is ~300 μm) and matrix (~84 vol%). Single hibonite crystal is observed in matrix. Fe-Ni metal is very rare (<0.1 vol%). The section has abundant hydrated materials, mainly serpentine. The matrix occurs as fine-grained rims surrounding chondrules.

Geochemistry: Olivine is Fa0.4-57.5; low-Ca pyroxene is Fs1.0-3.7Wo0.9-3.4.
