Writeup from MB 103:

Nova 013

United States?

Found: 2006

Classification: Ureilite

History: Possibly found by a mineral collector near Road 53, west of the town Zuni, New Mexico, in 2006.

Petrography: (K. Metzler, IfP): Coarse-grained ultramafic rock (grain sizes up to 5 mm) with aligned texture. It consists of about 70 vol% olivine and about 30 vol% pyroxene. Both olivine and pyroxene grains show a mosaicized texture due to strong recrystallization with subgrain sizes on the order of 20 μm. Low-Ni metal (mostly oxidized) occurs along grain boundaries together with troilite and elongated graphite units.

Geochemistry: Olivine cores Fa18.4±1.6 (Fa15-20, n=16) with reverse zoning towards grain boundaries (Fa5). Pyroxene cores, Fs11.5±1.5.
