(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2020 Oct

Classification: Primitive achondrite (Winonaite)

History: The meteorite was purchased from a dealer in Tindouf, Algeria.

Physical characteristics: Dark brownish rock without fusion crust.

Petrography: The meteorite exhibts a recrystallized texture with abundant 120 degree triple junctions present at mineral grain boundaries. Predominant mineral phases are equigranular, 100 to 300 µm sized Mg-rich olivine, low-Ca pyroxene, augite, and sodic feldspar grains. Opaque phases are kamacite, taenite, and troilite which ocurr finely dispersed in the section studied. No relict chondrules were observed.

Geochemistry: olivine: Fa3.2±0.1 (Fa3.1-3.3 FeO/MnO=12±1, n=12); low-Ca pyroxene: Fs4.1±0.1Wo1.9±0.1 (Fs4.0-4.3Wo1.8-2.1, FeO/MnO=11±1, n=13); Ca-pyroxene: Fs1.4±0.1Wo45.8±1.3 (Fs1.2-1.7Wo44.6-48.1, FeO/MnO=9±2, n=12); feldspar: An22.0±0.4Ab75.7±0.4Or2.3±0.2, n=11

Classification: Winonaite; likely paired with NWA 13624
