Purchased: 2009

Classification: HED achondrite (Eucrite, polymict)

History: The meteorite was bought in 2009 from a local meteorite dealer in Morocco.

Petrography: The meteorite is a fresh polymict breccia composed of eucrite clasts, melt clast with different quenching textures and mineral fragments embedded in fine grained matrix. Mineral phases are exsolved pyroxene, calcic plagioclase and sparse grains of diogenitic orthopyroxene. Accessories include silica polymorph, ilmenite, chromite, and troilite.

Geochemistry: Pyroxene host to augite lamellae: Fs54.0±3.1Wo2.8±0.9 (Fs50.9-57.8Wo1.8-4.0, n=10, FeO/MnO=35-41); Ca-pyroxene: Fs24.9±2.2Wo41.6±1.1 (Fs22.3-27.6Wo39.3-43.7, n=15, FeO/MnO=26-33); diogenitic pyroxene: Fs28.8±3.1Wo3.5±0.6 (Fs25.3-34.1Wo2.7-4.7, n=13, FeO/MnO=32-45); calcic plagioclase: An89.0±3.3 (An81.4-92.4, n=12)
