Writeup from MB 100:

Northwest Africa 7097 (NWA 7097)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2011

Classification: HED achondrite (Eucrite, polymict)

Petrography: Moderately weathered polymict breccia consisting of fine-grained and more coarse-grained basaltic lithologies, impact melt fragments, and mineral clasts set in a finer grained brecciated groundmass of dominantly calcic plagioclase and exsolved Ca-pyroxene. Minor phases include silica polymorphs, troilite, ilmenite and Ti-rich chromite.

Geochemistry: low Ca-pyroxene Fs45.6 (29.2-63.6) Wo7.5 (1.9-12.1), Fe/Mn=29-32; high Ca-pyroxene Fs32.8 (32.0-33.6) Wo37.2 (36.4-37.8), Fe/Mn=29-30; plagioclase An89.1 (82.2-92.5). The low-Ca pyroxene Fs ranges may reflect both diogenite and eucrite components.
