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.
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 (Fa28.4–32.2,
FeO/MnO = 89 to 98; Ca-rich pyroxenes, Fs10.1–25.7Wo40.6–13.0;
plagioclase, An95.2–97.7), troctolite olivine (Fa17–24.3,
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.
