Writeup from MB 104:

Lut 010        30°28.038’N, 59°23.183’E

Kerman, Iran

Find: 2015 Mar 20

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (LL6)

History: Meteorite fragments were found close to each other in March 2015 during an expedition in the Lut desert of Iran, in the Rig-e Yalan region of the desert. A sample was sent to H. Pourkhorsandi in July 2015.

Physical characteristics: No fusion crust is preserved. The fragments are dark brown, some of them with a black coating. Cut surfaces reveal rare metal grains and fractures.

Petrography: Strongly recrystallized chondrite. Plagioclase up to 100 μm. Observation of polished sections prepared from three different fragments show variable weathering grade from W2 to W4. The larger fragments are the less weathered.

Geochemistry: Olivine Fa26.3±0.8 (N=5), orthopyroxene Fs22.3±0.4Wo1.6±0.2 (N=3). Magnetic susceptibility log χ (× 10-9 m3/kg) = 4.18.

Classification: LL6

Specimens: Type specimen 30 g and a polished section at CEREGE. Main mass with finder.
