Writeup from MB 102:

Dhofar 1734 (Dho 1734)        18°44.782’N, 54°11.548’E

Zufar, Oman

Found: 14 Jul 2001

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CV3)

Petrography: Typical CV3 chondrite with large chondrules (~1 mm in apparent diameter). It also contains abundant fine–grained, olivine-rich aggregates embedded in an opaque matrix (30-40 vol%, estimated). Olivine in chondrules, fragments and aggregates in mostly Fa-poor (Fa1-6); however, fine-grained matrix olivine is Fa-rich (56+-3 mol%). Based on the high Fa content of matrix olivine and the low metal abundance, the meteorite is likely a member of the oxidized CV3 subgroup.
