Writeup from MB 87:

Dar al Gani 923

Libya

Found 2000 November

Achondrite (ureilite)

A weathered, crusted stone of 255 g was found. Mineralogy and classification (A. Burroni and L. Folco, MNA-SI): olivine and pigeonite-bearing ureilite with typical texture (average grain-size 1 mm). Mafic silicates show homogeneous core compositions (olivine Fo80; pigeonite En77Wo9) and wide, strongly reduced rims. Undulose extinction, planar fractures and kinking in both olivine and pigeonite indicate moderate shock deformation. Specimens: type specimen, 21.2 g, and one thin section, MNA-SI; main mass with anonymous finder
