Writeup from MB 104:

Northwest Africa 8194 (NWA 8194)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 10/2010

Classification: HED achondrite (Eucrite, polymict)

Petrography: The rock displays a light grayish interior and is composed of up to several mm-sized basaltic, melt, and mineral clasts set into a fine-grained clastic matrix. Mineral clasts and dominant matrix minerals are calcic plagioclase and pyroxenes with exsolution lamellae. Accessory phases include chromite, SiO2 polymorphs, and troilite. Diogenitic component is about 5%.

Geochemistry: Low-Ca pyroxene: Fs47.3±9Wo5.5±2.1 (Fs32.7-57.5Wo2.6-8.7, n=21, FeO/MnO=26-32); Ca-pyroxene: Fs21.4±0.2Wo43.5±0.3 (Fs21.1-21.7Wo42.9-43.8, n=10, FeO/MnO=27-30); calcic plagioclase: An91.5±2.3 (An88.4-93.9, n=14)
