Carbonaceous chondrite (C3, ungrouped)
Two stones of 34.5 g and 20.6 g were found by Alex Bevan. Classification
and mineralogy (Mike Zolensky, JSC): The meteorite is a
genomict mixure of two lithologies. Both lithologies contain abundant
chondrules up to 1 mm across, some with well-developed finegrained
rims or igneous rims; abundant smaller fragments, abundant
troilite and pentlandite, but no pyrrhotite. Metal (Fe49Ni51 to
Fe63Ni37) is rare due to high weathering grade. No magnetite was
observed. Lithology 1 olivine, Fa1-49 with peak at Fa3; low Capyroxene,
Fs2-11. Lithology 2 olivine, Fa23-42 with a pronounced peak
at Fa35; pyroxene, Fs2-25. Lithology 1 is petrographic type 3, and
lithology 2 has been heated briefly to as high as 1100oC. Oxygen
isotopes (R. Clayton, UChi): both lithologies are identical in oxygen
isotopic composition; d18O = +0.18 to -0.01, d17O = -4.39 to -
4.48. Specimens: main mass and type specimen, WAM.

Iron.  Ataxite, Ni-rich (IVB-ANOM).
Many masses, individuals up to 20kg, of total weight about 80kg, were 
found in the Chinga stream,  a tributary of the Upper Yenisei from the

incorrectly mapped.  Analysis, 16.38 %Ni, 0.181 ppm-Ga, 0.082 
ppm,Ge, 3.6 ppm.Ir,. Many of the specimens are strongly oxidised, 
and some have the torn appearance characteristic of fragments from 
meteoritic craters such as Caiion Diablo and Henbury.  It is thought 
probable that this fall was associated with a crater that has 
disappeared through erosion,  or perhaps has simply passed 
unnoticed, but fieldwork in 1963 failed to find any crater, Fragments of 
metal with 16.37%Ni, found in the alluvium of the upper Argolik river,

Carbonaceous chondrite (CM2)
A single stone of unknown weight was found by a rancher on a farm
3.4 miles north of Cimarron and sent to the University of Kansas in
the early 1950s. A piece was later acquired by a meteorite collector
and samples given to NAU in 1998 and pieces to AMNH in 1992 and
1993. Classification and mineralogy (M. Zolensky JSC; T. Bunch
NAU): olivine ranges from Fa1 to Fa64, with a peak at Fa1-2, average
Fa1.2, PMD 11%. Low Ca pyroxene ranges from Fs2Wo5 to Fs5Wo4,
also present are diopside, enstatite-diopside and apparent pigeonite,
and chromite. Porphyritic olivine, barred olivine and granular olivine
crystals are most abundant, maximum chondrule diameter is 2
mm. Chondrules are sparse, matrix and chondrule rims comprise
~85 vol. % of the meteorite. The percentage of matrix is similar to
that of Bells and Nogoya, but the composition of these is lower in S
and Mg, and higher in Si; this could be due to terrestrial weathering.
Specimens: type specimen 21 g AMNH; 7.1 g NAU.
