Tabarz......................................50'53' N., 10'31' E.
Gotha, Erfurt, Germany
Found 1854
Iron.  Octahedrite, coarse (2.0mm) (I?).
A mass of iron was said to have been seen to fall by a shepherd on 
October 18, 1854, but its oxidized surface seems to be incompatible 
with this.  Analysis, 5.69 %Ni.  Very little preserved.

Stone.  Olivine-hypersthene chondrite (L5), black.
After the appearance of a fireball (travelling from SE. to NE.) and 
three detonations, two stones were found which according to weights 
in collections must have been about 6kg and 3kg respectively. 
Description, analysis, G.A. Daubree,  Contains 'black  matter',
Analysis,  20.94 %  total iron .

Tafassasset undisclosed location until 2005 February 14
Tenere desert, Niger
Found 2000 February 14
Carbonaceous  chondrite  (equilibrated  CR-like  meteorite)  or
primitive achondrite 
Twenty-six pieces with a total weight of ~110 kg were found by
Bernard Dejonghe on an ancient alluvial plain.  The two largest weigh
~30 kg each.  Twenty stones were found on a trip in early 2000, and
six more in 2001  March.   The geographic coordinates of these
meteorites are being withheld by the  finder for three years.
Classification (M. Bourot-Denise, MNHNP):  Fa29.3, pyroxene Fs24.3;
~30 vol% millimeter-sized relic chondrules are clearly visible in
backscattered electron images.  Textures and relative abundances of
the phases vary considerably.  The dominant lithology has a coarse
grain size.  It consists of olivine (poikilitically enclosed within
A176 Russell et al.
pyroxenes in the relic chondrules), a small amount of plagioclase,
10% metal in rounded or oval-shaped grains often edged by chromite,
and minor sulphides in small grains.  The interchondrule matrix
consists of subhedral crystals of olivine embedded in plagioclase and
within anhedral crystals of chromite and phosphate that are up to 1 mm
in  size.  Two distinct plagioclase compositions are present:
An46.4Or2.2 in the matrix and An26.6Or5.2 in chondrule relics.    A
second lithology is finer grained and porous, without large metal grains
but with fairly abundant sulphide grains.  The large metal grains are
composed of kamacite (6% Ni, 0.6% Co) and martensite (12% Ni,
0.4% Co).  Some smaller metal grains associated with sulphides are
made up of taenite (up to 36% Ni, 0.2% Co) with martensite cores.
The sulphide is troilite (Cr 0.02.0.08%), with some grains containing
inclusions of Cu-bearing pentlandite.  See also Bourot-Denise et al.
(2002).  Bulk chemistry (J. Zipfel and B. Spettel, MPI; H. Palme,
Kln):  refractory lithophiles fractionated compared to a typical CR
composition,  leading  to  possible  classification  as  a  primitive
achondrite (Zipfel et al., 2002).  Oxygen isotopes (M. Javoy, IPGP):
17O = +0.18  0.08., 18O = +2.94  0.2..  Weathering grade,
W0/1;  shock  stage,  unknown.    Specimens:  type specimen, 396 g
plus five polished sections, MNHNP; main mass partly left in Niger,
partly with the finder.
A 3.61 kg stone, labeled "Te-1", was found in 2000 March,
probably on the same expedition noted above, and is reported by J.
Otto (Frei) to have been found in the Tenere Desert at 2045.8' N,
1026.5' E, and is probably paired with Tafassasset. 
Noble gases (L.  Schultz, MPI): data compatible with those of 
brachinites; exposure age is ~45 Ma. Shock stage, S1/2;
weathering grade, W0.  Specimens:  main mass with Christian Stehlin,
Basel; type specimen, 30.2 g and thin section,Frei.

Tagish Lake.................................5942'15.7"N 13412'4.9"W 
British Columbia, Canada 
Fell 2000 January 18, 08:43:42 PST (16:43:42 UT) 
Carbonaceous chondrite (C2, ungrouped) 
A brilliant fireball followed by loud detonations was widely observed 
over the Yukon Territory and northern British Columbia. The fireball was 
also detected by satellites in Earth orbit. Dust clouds from terminal
fragmentation events were widely observed. Jim Brook recovered several 
dozen meteorites totaling ~1 kg on the ice of Taku Arm, Tagish Lake, 
on January 25 and 26 (coordinates of first find given above). 
Between April 20 and May 8, ~500 additional specimens were located on the ice 
of Taku Arm and a small, unnamed lake 1.5 km to the east, but only ~200 were 
retrieved as many had melted down into the ice making their collection time
consuming; recovery was prioritzed based on meteorites' mass and degree of 
disaggregation. The total mass collected was between 5 and 10 kg. 
The strewnfield is at least 16  3 km, oriented ~S30E. 
Classification and mineralogy (M. Zolensky, JSC; M. Grady, NMH): 
possibly CI2 group; a matrix-dominated chondrite, with a few small chondrules, 
CAIs, and isolated grains; matrix mainly phyllosilicates, Fe-Ni sulfides and magnetite, 
with abundant Ca-Mg-Fe carbonates; olivine, Fa0-29, PMD = 2%, 
with a peak at Fa1; pyroxene, Fs1-7, PMD = 2%,
with a peak at Fs2; bulk C content 5.4 wt%, with d13C = +24.3 ; 
shock stage, S1. Oxygen isotopes (R. Clayton, UChi): 
d18O = +18.0-19.0 , d17O = 8.3-9.2 . Specimens: majority held by UCalg (contact A.
Hildebrand) and UWO (contact P. Brown). 

Tagounite...................................29'58'N, 5'36' W
Morocco
Found 1989 June
Iron ( Medium octahedrite, IIIAB )
A mass of 3.3kg was found NW of the town Tagounite. Te meteorite 
has been severly reheated and recrystallized.  Taenite has been 
reasorbed and kamacite is mostly equigranular.

Tagounite 084 (prov.) 
(Algerian Border,Morocco)
found 1999:
C3 UNGR. (stone) 
Total known weight only 98g !!
This is a very special carbonaceous chondrite for the serious meteorite collector,
and a meteorite which gave some very strange results during the initial analysis 
and classification....on 48 olivine points, 44 had forsterite over 99% which gave 
an Fa under 1. It's original classification was CV3 (anom), but after new studies 
on a sample I passed to the NHM, London, it looks like this is actually the very 
first recovered CR3!!!.....although in the best interests of caution, 
it'll probably be printed as C3 UNGR. An abstract on this unusual meteorite has
been prepared and it's NWA number will also be printed in the near future. 
Provisionally named Tagounite 084, cut sections reveal an abundance of very closely 
packed multi-coloured chondrules and some small white CAI's in a dark matrix.
Only one small stone weighing just 98g was all that was ever found of this extremely 
interesting meteorite, and most of the specimens have already been quickly purchased 
almost exclusively by researchers for further study, 
leaving precious little available for private collectors. 
The following slices and fragments are all that I have left!


Tahara......................................34'43.2' N, 137'18.3' E
Tahara-machi,Japan
Fell 1991 March,11:00 to 12:00 Japanese standard time
Ordinary chondrite (H5)
This meteorite was found in deck of the ship "M.S. Century-Highway 
No.1, which was loading cars in the T-3 berth on Toyota-pier at 
Toyohashi harbor.  When the crew came back from lunch after 12:00 
they found meteorite fragments spread out from two impact dents in 
the steel deck, measuring 20x6.5cm and 3cm in depth, the smaller 
17cm away from it.  From the size of the impact dent the total weight 
was estimated to more than 5kg, but most of it was thrown into the 
ocean by the cleaning crew, only about 1kg was preserved.

Algeria
Found 2002 December 23
Carbonaceous chondrite (CK4, anomalous)
A large (5.4 kg), dark grey, moderately compact stone, lacking fusion
crust was found by F. Beroud and C. Boucher. Mineralogy and
classification (B. Devouard and J.-L. Devidal, UBP; B. Zanda and
M. Denise, MNHNP): large chondrules (around 1mm in diameter),
abundant matrix (~70%), and numerous irregular whitish inclusions
up to 3 mm. In addition, several large (up to 2.5 cm) dark grey inclusions
show a finer grained petrology, with no (or extremely rare)
chondrules or CAIs. More of these fine-grained inclusions are visible
at the surface of the hand sample. The meteorite is nearly equilibrated:
olivines are around Fa30  4 except for a few unequilibrated
chondrules; OPX range from Fs3 to Fs30, with a mean at Fs19. The
groundmass is highly recrystallized, with homogeneous olivine,
orthopyroxene and plagioclase grains around 100  m in size. The
groundmass is texturally equilibrated, although most grains seem to
be porous. Magnetite is the dominant opaque mineral, associated
with minor pentlandite and pyrite. Outside chondrules, small magnetite
grains and minute sulfide grains are scatterred within the matrix.
No metal was observed. However, iron hydroxides patches are
visible, and metal or sulfides may be have been obliterated by terrestrial
weathering. The numerous irregular inclusions retain a finegrained
texture made of plagioclase and clinopyroxene that may be
metamorphosed CAIs. The overall characteristics of this meteorite
are consistant with a CK4 classification. However, the abundance of
CAIs and of fine-grained dark inclusions is anomalous for a CK, and
suggests affinities with the CV oxidized subgroup. Specimens: type
specimen, 110 g, MNHNP; main mass with finders.

Tanezrouft 082 ............................2449.036'N, 026.057'W
Algeria, West Tanezrouft
Found 20 December 2003
Carbonaceous chondrite (CM2)
A single, completely crusted stone, weighing 1012 g, was found.
Crust has polygonal cracks (terrestrial alteration), interior is black
and slightly friable. Classification and mineralogy (M. Bourot-
Denise, MNHNP): small, typically <100 m with few in the 300-
800 m size-range, rounded chondrules, abundant angular debris 
and a few CAIs are set in a very dark matrix. Matrix contains
troilite, pentlandite and clusters of framboidal magnetite. Olivine,
Fa in the range 0.44-64.4, mean 14.5  17.0; orthopyroxene, Fs in
the range 0.92-14.9, mean 2.5. Olivines are zoned in FeO-rich
chondrules, they contain up to 0.54 wt% CaO in FeO-poor chondrules.
Weathering grade is W2/3 (metal is oxidized, sulfide almost
intact). Specimens: type specimen 30.2 g, and one polished
mount MNHNP; main mass with Annick Goueslain and Jean Luc
Parodi. 

Tanezrouft 087 ..........................2545.366'N, 016.075'E
Algeria, East Tanezrouft
Found 23 December 2003
Ordinary chondrite (H5)
One 320 g stone, partially covered with a reddened fusion crust
was found. Classification and mineralogy (M. Bourot-Denise,
MNHNP): the stone is an H5 with a large clast of CO3 material
comprising about 30% of the entire mass. Host lithology: olivine,
Fa20.6  0.2; low Ca pyroxene, Fs18.0  0.3.; the chondritic texture is
still clearly visible, with many chondrule relics. Shock stage S2,
weathering grade W3. CO3 clast: it is much more altered, most
metal grains are oxidized and silicates are reddened; chondrules
are small (~100 m) and set in a fine-grained matrix with
abundant small sulfide grains. Opaque nodules comprise rusted
metal, sulfide and magnetite. Estimated metamorphic grade
between those of Colony and Kainsaz. Olivine, Fa in the range
1.6-32.6, mean 15.3  7.5, up to 0.4 wt% CaO; pyroxene, Fs in
the range 2.0-18.4, mean 10.1  5.5. Specimens: type specimen
35.1 g, and one polished mount MNHNP; main mass with Annick

Taza ( NWA 859 )
Found 2000
no coordinates recorded 
Many individual masses from this shower-producing meteorite have been
recovered in Taza, Morocco, having a total weight of 75.3 kg. 
This meteorite has been assigned number 859 in the NWA series. 
Many of the masses have well-oriented shapes. 
Taza is chemically anomalous and unrelated to any established iron 
chemical group. However, Taza has an elemental composition very similar
to the ungrouped, plessitic iron, Butler, and the two may be grouped together.
They have an extremely high Ge concentration of ~2000 ppm (Taza varies from
1500-5000 ppm), four times higher than any other iron meteorite. 
A high Ni content of ~16% promotes kamacite to form discontinuous, 
pointed spindles, rimmed by taenite, having widths of ~0.15 mm. 
Tetrataenite (~50% Ni) forms a narrow border on some kamacite spindles. 
In the dense, fine-grained plessite matrix, this spindle pattern is repeated 
on a scale ten times finer to form a micro-Widmansttten structure. 
This uncommon plessitic microstructure is transitional between 
the octahedrites and the ataxites.
