Writeup from MB 105:

Lut 011        30°55.02’N, 59°46.07’E

Khorasan, Iran

Find: 2015 October 14

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L4)

History: Two pieces found about 4 m apart during a systematic search for meteorites in the Lut desert. A single piece weighing 24.7 g was sent to H. Pourkhorsandi (CEREGE) on 13 Jan 2016.

Physical characteristics: Two brown-colored rock fragments without fusion crust. Cut surface shows distinct chondrules with a maximum chondrule size of 3 mm. An inner, less-weathered core is surrounded by a much more weathered region (porous in some parts).

Petrography: The mesostasis of chondrules is not completely crystallized. Troilite rims occur around some chondrules. In some regions troilite can be seen as inclusions inside rounded metal grains. Troilite is finely polycrystalline. A compound chondrule (porphyritic type hosting a barred type) is present.

Geochemistry: Olivine Fa22.8±1.0 (N=4), orthopyroxene Fs17.6±1.5Wo0.6±0.8 (N=4). Magnetic susceptibility log χ (× 10-9 m3/kg) = 4.64.

Classification: L4
