(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: Nov 2014

Classification: Mesosiderite

History: Purchased by Hanno Strufe from a local meteorite dealer Rissani, Morocco.

Petrography: The meteorite consists of about 60% silicates and 40% FeNi metal. The silicate portion is dominated by low-Ca pyroxene and calcic plagioclase. Minor phases include small compositionally zoned (i.e., Mg-rich core, Fe-rich rim) pyroxenes, silica, and merillite.

Geochemistry: Low-Ca pyroxene, Fs29.8Wo3.2, FeO/MnO=28-33; zoned pyroxene, Fs32±8Wo2.4±0.6 (Fs25.7-41.8Wo1.9-3.6, n=15, FeO/MnO=31-40); calcic plagioclase, An92±1.2 (An90-93.7, n=11)
