Writeup from MB 101:

Yamato 983890 (Y 983890)

Antarctica

Found: 1998

Classification: Ureilite (polymict)

Petrography: (A. Yamaguchi, N. Imae, M. Kimura, and H. Kojima, NIPR) This PTS displays a polymict breccia of polycrystalline clasts of pyroxene and olivine, unrecrystallized and recrystallized mineral fragments, sulfides, dark materials (up to ~2 mm) set in a clastic matrix. Finely (a few to several μm) recrystallized clasts contain laths of black phases (graphite?). Most large silicate clasts are texturally similar to those of normal monomict ureilites. Dark clasts consist of very-fine grained materials with minor amounts of sulfide minerals.

Classification: This meteorite is a polymict ureilite.
