Pairing MIL 090112, MIL 090291, MIL 11099, MIL 11198, MIL 11199, MIL 11201, MIL 11202, MIL 11204, MIL 11205
Mineral Composition (%Fa &  %Fs)
Ferrosilite (mol%): 28-29
Macroscopic Description - Cecilia Satterwhite
70% of the exterior has black patches of fusion crust that are glassy in areas. Areas without fusion crust reveal a tan/crème colored matrix. The interior is a crème/tan colored matrix with some crystalline faces and some yellow oxidation.
Thin Section Description (,2) - Cari Corrigan, Andrew Beck and Tim McCoy
The section is made up of coarse (up to 1-3 mm) intergrown pyroxene, with minor interstitial plagioclase and euhedral chromites (30 microns). A small amount of exsolution appears in the larger pyroxene grains. Pyroxene compositions are Fs28-29Wo3-5and plagioclase is An88-95Or1. The Fe/Mn ratio of the pyroxene is ~26-28. This meteorite is an unbrecciated diogenite.
