Writeup from MB 104:

Northwest Africa 10119 (NWA 10119)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2015 Feb

Classification: CO3-melt breccia

History: Purchased by Andreas Günemeyer from a local meteorite dealer in Agadir, Morocco.

Petrography: The meteorite is a breccia and consists of up to 6 mm sized angular clasts surrounded by abundant shock melt. The clasts are of CO3 type predominantly composed of small 0.1-0.3 mm sized chondrules, and less abundant CAIs and olivine amoeboids set into a fine-grained almost opaque matrix. Fine-grained material interstitial to the clasts seems to be recrystallized shock melt that contains abundant FeS droplets.
