Find: 6 March 2006
Mass: 18.4 g
(feldspathic fragmental breccia)
and physical characteristics: A small (18.4 g),
complete stone with no remaining fusion crust was recovered from the Jiddat
al Harasis region of Oman on March 6, 2006, by Robert Ward.
(J. Wittke and T. Bunch, NAU): Clast-rich,
fragmental breccia with sparse vesicles (<0.3 mm) that is dominated by
many varieties of quench-textured impact-melt breccias and plagioclase
fragments. Minor amounts of anorthositic olivine gabbros, troctolites, and
olivine/pyroxene fragments are also present.
compositions: Anorthositic gabbro olivine (Fa28.432.2,
FeO/MnO = 89 to 98; Ca-rich pyroxenes, Fs10.125.7Wo40.613.0;
plagioclase, An95.297.7), troctolite olivine (Fa1724.3,
FeO/ MnO = 96 103), plagioclase, An96.5.
Lunar (feldspathic fragmental breccia).
A total of 3.7 g is on deposit at NAU.
Robert Ward holds the main mass.
