Writeup from MB 106:

El Médano 356 (EM 356)        ~24°51’S, ~70°30’W

Antofagasta, Chile

Find: 2014 Nov 13

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L(LL)6)

Physical characteristics: Small full stone

Petrography: Recrystallized chondritic texture with average plagioclase size above 50 μm.

Classification: L(LL)6. Magnetic susceptibility is low for a L chondrite with weathering W1, but high for an LL6 chondrite. The small stone size makes magnetic classification not very robust in this case.
