Writeup from MB 105:

Northwest Africa 10595 (NWA 10595)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2014 Dec

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L3-4)

Petrography: The rock is a breccia. The studied thin section of about 2 cm2 consists of two different lithologies: an equilibrated type 4 and an unequilibrated type 3 lithology. Both lithologies cover a roughly similar area in thin section

Geochemistry: Mineral compositions and geochemistry: Mineral compositions in both lithologies have been analyzed separately. Olivine within the equilibrated part is Fa23.8±0.3 (n=12) and low-Ca pyroxene is Fs20.0±2.0Wo1.2±1.2 (n=9). Olivine within the unequilibrated part is Fa18.8±8.6 (Fa2-29, n=24) and low-Ca pyroxene is Fs16.0±9.2Wo1.5±2.2 (Fs2.3-39.1Wo0.2-7.4, n= 17); both parts have a well-preserved chondritic texture and chondrules of similar size.
