Northwest Africa 1150

Morocco

Purchased 2000

Achondrite (howardite)

A 67.1 g stone was purchased in Tagounite, Morocco, by a meteorite collector.  Classification and mineralogy (T. Bunch and J. Wittke, NAU): modal analyses on 24 cm2 show that 93 vol% of the clasts are diogenites, 7 vol% are basaltic eucrites. Diogenitic pyroxenes range from Fs28.1Wo2.5 to Fs7.8Wo11.3; plagioclase, An85–95 with ilmenite, chromite and sulfides. Eucrite pyroxenes range from Fs38Wo6 to Fs47.4Wo16.7; plagioclase, An88–92, with chromite (TiO2 = 0.68–3.48 wt%), troilite, and silica.  Low weathering grade, W1. Specimens: type specimen, 21.1 g, and one thin section, NAU; main mass is with the purchaser.
