Fukang....................................44° 26’N  87° 38E
Fukang , China
Find : 2000
Pallasite ( Main group )
History:An anonymous finder recovered a 1003 kg specimen near Fukang, 
China, in 2000.  The sample was at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show in 
February 2005, and seen by D. S. Lauretta of UAz. Approximately 20 kg 
had been removed form the main mass by the finder before the Tuscon 
show and the mass investigated at UAz was 983 kg. (D. S. Lauretta, 
D. Hill, M. Killgore, D. Della-Giustina, Y. Goreva, UAz; I. Franchi, Open U). 
Petrography and Geochemistry: Olivine Throughout the large mass, 
olivines vary in shape from rounded to angular; many are fractured.  
They range in size from <5 mm to several cm.  
The main pallasite contains several regions of “massive” olivine clusters 
up to 11 cm in diameter with thin metal veins only a few mm in width. 
Fo86.4 with molar Fe/Mg (0.1367), Fe/Mn (40.37), and Ni = 0.03 (wt%).  
Zoning was not observed for Al, Cr, Ca, Mn, or Fe typical of many olivines 
in Main Group pallasites. Metal and Sulfides Groundmass is mostly kamacite 
with some occurrences of kamacite mantles surrounding taenite cores, 
rounded taenite adjacent to kamacite, and regions of “comb plessite”.  
Kamacite contains an average Ni = 6.98 wt%. Schreibersite is enclosed 
by wide kamacite bands and as mantles adjacent to olivines.  
Two populations of schreibersite are present with Ni = 26 and 35 (wt%) near chromite.  
Vermicular sulfide (troilite) is present in some olivine.  
Thin veins of kamacite and troilite occur inside many olivines as well. 
Minor Phases: Euhedral chromites up to 0.5 cm, rounded whitlockite adjacent 
to olivine, and troilite heterogeneously distributed in thin veins.  
Several regions, ranging from <100 μm to several mm, that contain a complex 
mixture of olivine, low-Ca pyroxene, troilite, and whitlockite were 
observed adjacent to chromite.  
Bulk Composition Fe = 89.9 ± 0.3 Ni = 9.0 ± 0.2 P = 0.62 ± 0.02 Co = 0.51 ± 0.01 
(all wt.%); Ge = 41 ± 4 As = 26 ± 5 Ga = 19.1 ± 0.5 Pd = 5.1 ± 0.2 Au = 2.6 ± 0.2 
(all µg/g); Ir = 43 ± 4 ng/g.  Oxygen Isotopes δ18O = 2.569‰, δ17O = 1.179‰.  
Classification:  Pallasite (main group).  
Specimens: A total of 31 kg of sample is on deposit at UAz. M. Killgore hold a total of 31 kg.  
An anonymous collector holds the main mass.
