Writeup from MB 106:

Maghidet 001        26°46.156’N, 10°06.825’E

Awbari, Libya

Find: August 23, 2016

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (L6, melt breccia)

History: The meteorite was found in 2016 during a field trip in the Libyan desert near the Wadi Maghidet.

Petrography: The meteorite is composed of abundant melt regions characterized by recrystallized shock melt containing FeNi metal and sulfide globules. Some regions still display chondritic textures with relict chondrules and mineral fragments. Olivine and pyroxene therein show strong mosaicism attesting to a high degree of shock metamorphism.
