Writeup from MB 102:

Dhofar 1736 (Dho 1736)        18°43.685’N, 54°10.359’E

Zufar, Oman

Found: 18 Jul 2001

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L3)

Petrography: Ordinary chondrite having some large fragments (accretionary breccias). The chondrules are surrounded by opaque, fine-grained matrix. Although the olivine and pyroxene within chondrules have low Fe contents, the chondrite is classified as an L3 chondrite based on the chondrules size (~500-700 μm), significantly larger than for H chondrites. Although the rock is severely weathered, it still has abundant metal indicating that the original metal content was higher than in LL chondrites.
