Writeup from MB 104:

Northwest Africa 10007 (NWA 10007)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: Nov 2014

Classification: Rumuruti chondrite (R3-6)

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

Petrography: The meteorite is a breccia with heterogeneously distributed lithic fragments of all petrologic types (3 to 6) in a fine-grained clastic groundmass. Olivine is the dominant mineral phase in all lithologies. In type 6 clasts it is Fe-rich (Fa38); in type 3 lithologies it is highly unequilibrated (Fa9.4-45.4). Orthopyroxene displaying typical patchy zoning is only found in unequlibrated lithologies. Minor phases include albitic feldspar, augite, chromite, pentlandite and pyrrhotite. FeNi metal is virtually absent.

Geochemistry: Olivine in type 6 lithology, Fa38; olivine in type 3 lithology, Fa27.3±12.9 (Fa9.4-45.4, n=24); low-Ca pyroxene in type 3 lithology, Fs19.1±9.2Wo1.4±0.9 (Fs5.5-30-9Wo0.5-3.5, n=29)
