the matrix is a gorgeous coarse-grained crystalline texture. 

Sahara 00177 ................................+0°09.25', z+0°06.87' W
Found 2000
Carbonaceous chondrite (C3/4, CV-like)
A 12 g stone was found by Labenne. Mineralogy and classification
(M. Bourot-Denise, MNHNP): related to reduced CVs, similar to
Coolidge and Loongana 001. Chondrules, chondrule fragments and
CAIs make up ~ 75 vol % of the meteorite. Overall, chondrules are
smaller than in Allende, with a mean size ~ 500  m. CAIs (~ 10 vol
%) are large, up to 1 mm in size. Matrix is rare. The largest and most
abundant chondrules are type-I, porphyrytic olivine-pyroxene chondrules,
often of irregular shape, with olivine crystals in the 10-40
 m size range, and abundant opaque beads. Less abundant metalpoor
barred olivine, radial pyroxene and other chondrules are generally
smaller (100-300  m) and more rounded. Olivine, Fa8.0±1.0
(range: 5.0-9.6); low-Ca pyroxene Fs7.6±2.4 (range: 3.4-10.5). Chondrule
mesostasis is completely devitrified. A few chondrules are
partially rimmed with silica (as is the case in Coolidge). Fe-Ni metal
is kamacite, with minor taenite. Weakly shocked, metal is not
warped, troilite is monocrystalline. Moderately weathered; metal
grains, especially those in the matrix or on chondrules edges, have a
2-5  m-wide limonite rims; veins in chondrules silicates are also
filled with limonite; troilite is unaltered. Type specimen, 4 g,
MNHNP, main mass with Labenne.

Found 2002
Achondrite (winonaite)
One 88 g stone was found by Labenne. Classification and
mineralogy (M. Bourot-Denise, MNHNP): equidimensional
silicate grains, with abundant 120° triple junctions, grain size
mainly in the range 200-300 µm; wide black veins. Olivine, Fa2.6;
low-Ca pyroxene, Fs3.2. Fe-Ni metal contains 0.6 wt% P and
forms large (500 µm) isolated grains; troilite contains 2.1 wt% Cr
and fills cracks. Minor minerals include diopside (Fs1.4-5.5),
plagioclase, schreibersite, daubréelite. Shock stage S5,
weathering grade W2. Specimens: type specimen 18.5 g,
MNHNP; main mass with finders.

Sahara 02501
Ti Hedjirine, Sahara
Found 2002 May
Achondrite (Eucrite)
One single massive (3960g) round-tetrahedral shaped stone with
glassy black fusion crust (75 % of surface), deep regmaglypts
well marked on 3 faces, was discovered in the Sahara by a
meteorite prospector. Petrography and Mineralogy: (A. Jambon,
O. Boudouma, H. Chennaoui-Aoudjehane UPVI): This very fresh
rock has an overprinted glomerophyric texture, finely and highly
fractured and partly molten. Modal mineralogy: pyroxene
53±2%; plagioclase: 46.3±1.4%; silica: 4±2% evaluated from 25
SEM frames covering one cm2. Mineralogy: Fe-rich subhedral
pyroxene up to 600 µm in length. Average composition:
En28Fs57Wo15, FeO/MnO =32±3. (range : En25Fs32Wo42 to En28
Fs69Wo3). Pyroxene is zoned with Wo poor cores and fine
exsolution bands. Plagioclase: An86Ab12Or2 (from An91 to An79).
Plagioclase laths are about 300µm long, and partly recrystallised.
Ilmenite, silica are irregularly distributed and associated with Krich
feldspathic glass (1.5% K2O) with up to 9% FeO. Silica glass
(90% SiO2 plus a plagioclase fraction) is also present. Specimens
type specimen UPVI: 1.7+1.0 +1.6 + 11.2 + 9.6 g. Main mass:
Caillou Noir. 

Sahara 03500
Found 2003 May
Achondrite (ungrouped)
In May 2003, a dark 221.33g stone was discovered in the Sahara
by a person prospecting for meteorites, acting on behalf of
Caillou Noir. The rock is light gray-green, fine-grained, and
displays dark globules of a few mm to cm with rusty rims.
Cracked fusion crust (dark greenish brown) and a deep regmaglyt
on one side, broken on the other side with desert alteration.
Petrography and mineralogy (A. Jambon and O Boudouma,
UPVI; and B. Devouard, UBP): Magmatic texture of
orthopyroxene and olivine with interstitial glass. A few rounded
metal-sulfide globules (~16% vol.), 0.5-10 mm, are dispersed in 
this silicate "matrix". Glomerocrysts of pyroxene ~50-300 µm,
En77Fs20Wo3, FeO/MnO = 27.8±0.4.. Fine rims of
clinopyroxene (En50Fs14Wo36) where in contact with the glass
phase. Slightly zoned olivine, 20-50 µm, Fo81 to Fo76,
FeO/MnO = 45.5 ±0.6. Interstitial glass (c. 15 % vol.) close to
feldspathic composition (c. Ab17An4Or13Qz65). Very minor Fe
sulfide grains (<5 µm) in the glass phase or between crystals.
Metal-sulfide globules consist of dendritic metal in pyrrhotite
(coarse texture, visible with the naked eye). Metal grains have
discontinuous rims of Fe-Ni phosphide, and display a finegrained
texture with irregular exsolutions of taenite. Smaller
globules (<500 µm; Fe= 89 %, Ni=9-10 %, P= 0.5-1.5 %)
consist of kamacite with phosphide and taenite exsolution,
surrounded by pyrrhotite. The rock is highly fractured, with
secondary veins of Ca-carbonate of probable terrestrial origin.
Minor oxydation is visible around the metal-sulfide globules
(W1). Specimens: type specimens: UPVI 21.36 g, Université de
Clermont III: 2.0 g; main mass: Caillou Noir.

Iron (IIAB)
Two individual masses, 13.44 g and 5.10 g, were found within
100 m of each other, in a dry streambed, by Patricia and Gordon
Cave who were prospecting for gold with metal detectors. Both
samples were recovered from 4-8 inches depth in soft, dry, desert
soil. Both are complete individuals with 2-3 mm diameter
regmaglypt-like markings on the exterior. Classification and
analysis (D. Hill, LPL): The analyzed sample is mainly kamacite
with trace amounts (<<5%) of taenite and schreibersite. No shock
deformation is evident. Average compositions from microprobe
analysis are: Kamacite, Fe = 93.6 ± 1.4 %, Ni = 5.9 ± 0.6 %
(n=536); Taenite, Fe = 72.4 ± 5.8 %, Ni = 26.0 ± 5.9 % (n=111);
Schreibersite, Fe = 44.7 ± 6.5 %; Ni = 40.7 ± 5.2 %; P = 14.3 ±
1.8 % (n=94). Width of cross section of a single kamacite lamella
~ 4.3 ± 0.5 mm. The larger, intact specimen indicates octahedral
structure with similar kamacite widths. No obvious
Widmanstatten structure is visible on the etched surface. Average
bulk composition of two replicate INAA samples from the
smaller specimen: Ni 6.04 ± 0.06%; Ga 54.6 ± 0.5 µg g-1; Ge 190
± 40 µg g-1; Ir 0.018 ± 0.002 µg g-1; Au 1.06± 0.01 µg g-1; W
0.62 ± 0.03 µg g-1; As 7.94 ± 0.11 µg g-1. Based on Ni and other
elements, a IIAB designation is indicated, with a closer
agreement to IIB irons. Comparisons of Au vs. Ga, Co, Ir exhibit
concentrations that are consistent with IIAB also but do not fall
exactly along sample trends noted by Wasson et. al (1998). Type
specimens: 2.3 g LPL; 2.8 g + 13.44 g (main mass) Fleischmann

Martian basalt (shergottite) 
At two locations, 1864 m apart, 5 grey-greenish stones were found 
which are macroscopically identical. Sayh al Uhaymir (SaU) 005 comprises one 
fragment of 547 g and two individuals of 561g and 236g, which are partially
covered by fusion crust and show regmaglyptes. SaU 008 comprises one large 
individual of 7805 g and a smaller fragmented individual of 774 g. On the latter, 
the fresh black fusion crust is almost completely preserved. 
The total mass of SaU 005/008 is 9923 g. Mineralogy and classification (J. Zipfel, MPI): 
porphyritic texture with large olivine phenocrysts (Fo64-71) in a fine-grained 
groundmass of pigeonite (En61-70Wo6-13) and maskelynite (An51-65Or0.3-0.9); 
minor phases are augite, phosphates and opaques; strongly shocked: mosaicism and planar
deformation of olivines, twinning and fracturing of clinopyroxene, 
and up to mm-sized shock melted areas with quench textures are common;
brown-orange ring-like structures formed by extremely fine-grained intergrowths of
unidentified phases are abundant in impact melt areas and pyroxenes;. 
The meteorite is extremely fresh, with only a few of the larger cracks partially 
filled with calcite. Bulk chemical analyses (B. Spettel, G. Dreibus, MPI; H.
Palme, Köln), noble gas analyses (M. Paetsch, L Schultz, MPI), 
and Sm-Nd systematics (E. Jagoutz, MPI):texture, bulk chemistry, 
noble gases and Sm-Nd systematics indicate a very close relationship to Dar al Gani
476/489/670/735; however, based on the distinct mineral chemistry and 
the place of find, simple pairing with those meteorites can be excluded. 
Specimens: type specimen, 60 g, MPI; main mass with anonymous finder.

Lunar meteorite (KREEP-rich mafic impact melt breccia and
adhering regolith)
A complete, light grey-greenish rounded stone (70 x 43 x 40 mm)
weighing 206.45 g was found in the Sayh al Uhaymir region of
Oman. Finders, mineralogy and classification: E. Gnos, B. A. Hofmann
and A. Al-Kathiri (UniBern): Dark brown fusion crust is only
locally preserved. The impact melt breccia (87 vol% of the stone,
based on 8 X-ray tomographic sections) contains 25-40 vol% of
strongly shocked magmatic rocks and crystal clasts (up to 17 mm)
derived from norites, evolved magmatites, and granulites set in a
fine-grained (<0.1 mm) crystalline matrix. Most crystal fragments
are shocked plagioclases, locally associated with enstatite. In addition
to plagioclase metallic iron, spinel, olivine, and ortopyroxene
clasts are present. The fine-grained impact melt matrix consists
mainly of short prismatic low-Ca pyroxene (En61-64,Wo2-4), interstitial
plagioclase (An75-81) intergrown with potassium feldspar. The
remaining minerals are poicilitic ilmenite, whitlockite, olivine (Fo58-
59), zircon, and traces of troilite, kamacite and tridymite. The regolith
(13 vol.%) present one one side of the meteorite comprises
crystalline and glassy volcanic rocks, magmatic lithic fragments,
breccia fragments, fragments of mafic granulites, and crystal fragments.
The impact melt breccia contains 32 ppm Th and 8.5 ppm U,
0.47% K (K/U= 553), indicating a lunar origin. This is further confirmed
by fusion-crust Fe/Mn of 75.1 (microprobe, n=14) and impact
melt bulk Fe/Mn of 79. Oxygen isotope composition (I. A.
Franchi, OU) are also consistent with a lunar origin (.17O = 0.001 ±
0.032‰). This impact melt breccia is the most strongly KREEPeriched
lithology among all known lunar rocks. Weathering: W1 (Fe
metal shows only little oxidation). Specimens: All in NMB

A 249.06 g stone and six additional fragments (total 86.80 g)
giving a total weight of 335.86 g were found. All fragments fit to
one stone and were found by A. Al-Kathiri, B. Hofmann, and E.
Gnos. Classification and mineralogy (E. Gnos, UBE; B.
Hofmann, NMBE; A. Al-Kathiri, UBE): The rock contains very
fine grained CAIs (up to 1.5 mm), fine to medium grained CAIs
(up to 3 mm in size), as well as few coarse grained CAIs (up to
15 mm in size). The matrix/(chorndrule+aggragate) ratio is 0.43.
The mineralogy of the CAIs comprises forsterite, spinel,
gehlenite, anorthite, and pyroxene (“fassaite” or Al diopside).
The composition of matrix and chondrule olivine is Fa1.8-8.5, and
low-Ca pyroxenes show a range of Fs1.8-6.3Wo1.1-1.4. Many normal
chondrules contain well-equilibrated olivine or olivineorthopyroxene.
The rock also contains magnetite, and kamacite.
Weathering grade is 2-3, shock stage is 2, and metamorphic grade
is 3.2/3.3 based on red cathodoluminescence colours. Probably
paired with SaU 040. All specimens NMBE.

Carbonaceous chondrite (CM2)
A 430 g stone was found one morning near the porch of the finder's
house.  He did not pick it up for fear of radioactivity, as news of the
Chernobyl accident had just broken.  Several days later it rained, and
the next-door neighbor discovered a leak in his roof, apparently caused
by  the  impact  of  the  meteorite.    At  this  point,  the  water-soaked
meteorite was collected.  Mineralogy and classification (A. Okada,
RIKEN; S. Yoneda, NSMT; T. Nakamura, KyuU; M. Zolensky, JSC):
olivine, Fa0.23; aqueous alteration is extensive.  Bulk composition
(H. Naraoka, Y.  Oura and M. Ebihara, TMU):  C = 1.99 wt%, N =
0.08 wt%, H = 1.37 wt%, Zn = 0.54 × CI, S = 0.42 × CI.  Oxygen

Petrography, Composition and Classification: (Alan Rubin, UCLA)   Petrography: The rock has a granular texture consisting mainly of quasi-equant olivine and low-Ca pyroxene grains from 60 to 500 µm in size and averaging ~160 µm. Accessory plagioclase grains ~200 µm with polysynthetic twinning are also present. In some areas the silicate grains are densely packed and many grain boundaries meet at 120° triple junctions. In other areas the silicate grains are separated and surrounded by limonite. The separated silicate grains range in shape from fragmental to subrounded to subhedral. No relict chondrules were observed. Some silicate grains contain 100-300 µm long curvilinear trails of 2-4 µm chromite blebs. The rock is very weathered and contains abundant limonite and patches of clay phases. Nevertheless, a few patches of troilite and rare grains of metallic Fe-Ni are present.  Composition: Olivine = Fa4.6; Pyroxene = Fs6.9+/- 0.1, Wo2.9+/- 1.6 Classification:  The stone is classified as an Acapulcoite, S2. Type Specimens: A 0.49 g sample on deposit at UCLA. The main mass is held by Jason Utas.
