Batyushkovo        55°32.92´N, 35°17.97´E

Smolensk Region, Russian Federation

Found: June 2007

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L5)

History: A stone was discovered in a ravine near Batyushkovo village by A.I. Komyagin, who was looking for boulders for his garden. The whole stone was presented by the finder to the meteorite collection of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Physical characteristics: A 4620 g rounded complete stone is partially covered with weathered light colored fusion crust. The freshly looking black interior of the stone is enveloped by a 3 - 5 mm thick crust of rusted material.

Petrography: (D.D.Badjukov, Vernad) Chondrule outlines are recognizable, low-Ca clinopyroxene is present, metal content is 3.0 vol.%, plagioclase is totally converted into maskelynite, olivine grains have up to 4 planar fracture systems and show very strong mosaicism and occasionally incipient recrystallization.

Geochemistry: Mineral compositions: olivine (Fa23.7±0.2), low-Ca pyroxene (Fs20.1±0.7Wo1.6), high-Ca pyroxene (Fs7.9Wo42.4), maskelynite (Ab84Or6), kamacite (4.6 - 6.2 wt% Ni, 1.2 - 1.6 wt% Co), taenite (26.7 - 31.1 wt% Ni, 0.4 - 0.5 wt%. Co).

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L5), S5, weathering grade of stone interior, W1.

Specimens: Type specimens: whole mass plus thin section, Vernad.
