Writeup from MB 111:

Aydar 009        27°56’09.27"N, 10°13’52.99"W

South, Morocco

Purchased: 2021

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L5/6)

History: Found by Mouloud Oudinat and later bought by Jean Redelsperger from Mohamed Elguirah in 2021.

Physical characteristics: Dark brown irregular stones.

Petrography: Brecciated shock darkened chondrite. Opaque minerals are metal and troilite, mostly weathered, and preserved only as µm-sized eutectic blebs. The petrographic type is difficult to assess with certainty because of the pervasive silicate shock darkening.

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L5/6). Shock darkened.

Specimens: Type specimen at CEREGE. Main mass with Jean Redelsperger.
