Meteoritical Bulletin, No. 108
Meteorite (Lunar meteorite (feldspathic breccia))
History: Found at a location north of Jdiriya,
Morocco, near Oued Skikima, in November 2018.
Material was obtained by Ahmad Bouragaa and Aziz
Habibi, and some was purchased by Mark Lyon and Mendy Ouzillou
in November 2018.
Physical characteristics: Multiple
pieces (total 12.168 kg) of the same distinctive very fine grained, dark
gray microvesicular material with sparse,
irregularly distributed small milky clasts.
Petrography: (A. Irving and
S. Kuehner, UWS) Sparse, very
small mineral clasts of anorthite, olivine, pigeonite and augite occur
within a dominant extremely fine grained, microvesicular
matrix containing accessory kamacite, troilite and minor barite.
Geochemistry: Olivine (Fa34.0-35.8,
FeO/MnO = 86-94, N = 2), pigeonite (Fs22.7-28.6Wo8.2-8.8,
FeO/MnO = 49-59, N = 2), augite (Fs17.1-17.4Wo38.5-36.6,
FeO/MnO = 51-54, N = 2), anorthite (An95.8-96.9Wo0.4-0.2,
N = 2).
(feldspathic regolith melt breccia).
Specimens: 20.62 g
including a polished slice and one polished thin section at UWB; remainder with A. Bouragaa, A. Habibi, M. Lyon and M. Ouzillou.
