Pseudometeorite..

suggests a small whirlwind.  A similar phenomenon was also observed 
three days later at Springfield .

Hambleton 
Location: Hambleton, North Yorkshire, England
Fall/find: Find
Date found: August 2005
TKW: A single mass weighing 17.6kg
Classification: Stony-Iron (Pallasite-Main Group)

History: A mass of 17.6 kg was found beside a forest track by Rob and 
Irene Elliott while hunting for meteorites, approx. 2km south of Hambleton,
 North Yorkshire, England. Physical characteristics: One individual was found. 
It has a highly weathered exterior with cm-sized patches of blue weathering products. 
No fusion crust is present.
Petrography (D. Johnson and M. M. Grady, PSSRI, OU; R. Hutchison and C. Kirk, NHM, London). 
The meteorite is brittle and easily fragments. It contains ~ 60 vol% olivine, 
Fo88.3, ~25 vol% metal and ~15 vol% sulphide, irregularly distributed. 
Olivine ranges in size from ~10 mm in fractured, rounded grains that 
form mosaics in olivine-rich regions, to angular fragments 
<0.1 mm set in metal or sulphide where these opaques are dominant. 
The olivine mosaics have metal and/or sulphide veins along grain boundaries 
or filling fractures. Metal is largely kamacite, commonly as 
plessitic intergowths with taenite, which also forms thin rims with <60 wt% Ni. 
Sulphides are abnormally abundant for a pallasite and some regions <5 cm across 
are composed almost exclusively of troilite, enclosing minor fragmented olivines. 
Within olivine and metal, sulphides occur as veins, commonly with Ni-poor centres 
and Ni-rich rims. Chromite and schreibersite are accessory phases. 
The outer 1 cm of the mass is terrestrially weathered, with veins of Fe oxides 
and patches of a blue phosphate mineral.
Geochemistry Oxygen isotopic ratios (I. A. Franchi, PSSRI, OU) d17O = +1.383, 
d18O = +3.029, D17O = -0.187 are typical of a main group pallasite. 
We hope to have the metal composition data by end of April.. 
Classification: Main Group Pallasite.
Specimens: Main mass with Rob Elliott, Fernlea Meteorites.A 1 kg sample, 
3 slices and 1 thin section, are on deposit at PSSRI, OU.

Enstatite chondrite (EL4)
Two dark brown stones, a larger one of 103 g and a smaller one of 2
g were found in the Hammadah al Hamra region. Classification and
mineralogy (G. Pratesi, V. Moggi Cecchi, MSP): the partly fusioncrusted
stone is shield-shaped; well defined chondrules and 50  m
sized enstatite crystals indicate petrologic type 4. Major phases are
enstatite (En98.54Wo0.85), kamacite (Fe = 90.46, Ni = 7.51, Si = 0.57,
P = 0.53, Co = 0.47 Wt. %) and troilite; other minor phases are
diopside (En52.91Wo46.85) and plagioclase (An26.60) in very small
grains (<5  m). Neither niningerite nor alabandite was found. The
plagioclase composition, as well as the presence of diopside, is unusual
compared with other known EL chondrites. Inside the chondrules,
whose average size ranges from 600 to 1200  m, very small
rounded grains containing a calcium chloride phase (1-3  m size)
have been observed. Based on texture, mineralogy and chemistry
(mainly An content of plagioclase > 13 mol% and Si content of
kamacite <1.9 wt. %; Keil, 1968; Zhang et al., 1995) the meteorite is
classified as an EL4 chondrite. Terrestrial weathering grade is rather
low (W1); optical features (undulatory extinction of enstatite) indicate
that the sample is weakly shocked (S3). Specimens: main mass,
type specimen and thin section, MSP.
