Classification: Enstatite chondrite (EL6)

History: Purchased by Hanno Strufe from a local meteorite dealer in Rissani, Morocco.

Petrography: The meteorite displays a recrystallized texture of dominantly large, about 100-μm sized enstatite grains and abundant Fe,Ni metal. Less abundant phases are albitic feldspar, troilite, schreibersite and daubreelite. No relict chondrules were found; metal is heavily altered.
