Writeup from MB 102:

Northwest Africa 7467 (NWA 7467)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2012 Jul

Classification: HED achondrite (Diogenite, polymict)

History: Purchased from a Moroccan dealer by Gary Fujihara in July 2012.

Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS) Fresh, complex polymict breccia composed of >90 vol.% crystal fragments derived from several types of diogenitic orthopyroxenes. Contains minor amounts of exsolved pigeonite, calcic plagioclase, magnesian and ferroan olivine, rare ferropigeonite, chromite, ilmenite, troilite and stained metal. There also are less abundant lithic clasts of basaltic to quench-textured eucrites and dark-matrix microbreccias, plus sparse, broken spherical grains of pinkish-tan glass.

Geochemistry: Diogenitic orthopyroxene (Fs20.2Wo0.6; Fs29.4Wo4.9; Fs34.4Wo2.7; FeO/MnO = 28-30), orthopyroxene (Fs51.1Wo4.6); FeO/MnO = 30), clinopyroxene (Fs24.8-27.9Wo40.5-39.0); FeO/MnO = 29), ferropigeonite (Fs76.1Wo13.8; FeO/MnO = 22), olivine (Fa18.3; FeO/MnO = 64), ferroan olivine (Fa59.8; FeO/MnO = 47).

Classification: Diogenite (polymict breccia).

Specimens: 21.4 g of sample and one polished thin section are on deposit at UWB. G. Fujihara holds the main mass.
