Northwest Africa 1828

Morocco

Purchased 2002 September

Achondrite (eucrite, cumulate)

A complete fusion-crusted stone (16.1 g) was purchased in Agadir by a Moroccan dealer in 2002 September for N. Oakes (Oakes).  Classification and mineralogy (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS): Very fractured and recrystallized, with sporadic glass-rich veinlets.  Relatively fine grained assemblage of anorthite (containing minor FeO) and exsolved pigeonite (some exhibiting deformed lamellae of augite in orthopyroxene) with minor Ti-Al-bearing chromite, troilite, ilmenite and a silica polymorph.  No grains of metal were observed.  FeO/MnO is 31.3 for orthopyroxene and 31.0 for clinopyroxene.  Specimens: type specimen, 3.5 g, and one polished thin section, UWS; main mass, Oakes.
