Northwest Africa 2853 complete main mass of 860g $15,999
A 860g and a 140g fully crusted and lightly weathered stone were purchased in Erfoud, Morocco.
Description and classification (T. Bunch and J. Wittke, NAU): dark gray, highly shocked howardite
with a heterogeneous distribution of diogenite fragments that tend to be large (2 to 9 mm in dia.).
Diogenite modes for 3 thin sections give 0, 9, and 15 vol. %. Eucrites have a fine- to coarse-grained
size range and consist of subophitic and cumulate textured basalts. Host pigeonite,
Fs45.3-51.7Wo5.8-9.0, FeO/MnO = 29-33; exsolution lamellae, Fs33.6- 39.4Wo19.0-25.4.
Diogenite orthopyroxenes, Fs22.6-25.6 Wo1.8-2.3, FeO/MnO = 24-27; plagioclase, An89–94.3.
Most pyroxenes recrystallized into small, polygonal aggregates; plagioclase melted,
although original grain boundaries are preserved (shocked beyond maskelynite stability range),
and crystallized into fine-grained fibrous to radiating textures.
Specimens: type sample, 22 g, NAU; main mass, Regelman.
Fukang Meteorite Main Mass

offer for sale
Main Mass $15,000
2353 Provisional after classification and 2 cuts the
main mass weight is 500g
A stone of 580 g was purchased in Erfoud, Morocco. Description and classification (T. Bunch and J. Wittke, NAU): completely recrystallized into polygonal and subhedral grains; H-group chondrite affinities, but with different oxygen isotopes (H7, old classification)), no relict chondrules; grain size < 0.5 mm, mean = 0.2 mm; intensely fractured with abundance of subparallel compression fractures. Olivine and pyroxene analyses are within the precision of the electron microprobe. Olivine, Fa17.9, FeO/MnO = 34; orthopyroxene, Fs15.6Wo3.1, FeO/MnO = 19; plagioclase, An13.1Or2.6; chromite, cr# = 87; FeS, Ni = 1.65 wt %; metal (taenite only), Ni = 21.6 wt %; troilite, Ni = 1.36 wt % Ni, trace amount of merrillite. Oxygen isotope replicate analyses (T. Larson and F. Longstaffe, UWO) of acid-washed, bulk sample by laser fluorination gave d17O = 3.16 and 3.3, d18O = 5.10 and 5.51, and D17O = 0.44 and 0.51. Weathering grade, W3 and lightly shocked (S2). Specimens: type specimen, 20.1 g, NAU; main mass, ARN , Ken Regelman.
An update from Ted Bunch at NAU on your H7 or achondrite – after looking
at the isotope plot, it does not plot in the H7 field but away and towards the TF line,
therefore it is unique and will write it up such as soon as Tony and I decide what to say.
We also need to discuss the matter with Jeff Grossman.
It is OK to Sell it as it now stands because it will always be an achondrite derived from an
H chondrite, although thru very hi T metamorphism .
NWA 2352 Urelite Main Mass After cutting and clasification the weight is 265 g SALE Price $15,000
A complete, dark brown and partially crusted stone of 302 g was purchased in Erfoud, Morocco. Description and classification (T. Bunch and J. Wittke, NAU): high amounts of large, laminated graphite grains (up to 1.9 mm in length) occur interstitially to olivine and pigeonite; only small amounts of carbonaceous-metal-silicate masses (CMSM) are present. Very limited olivine rim reduction or smelting, R1 level with less that 0.02 mm of olivine margins affected. Olivine cores, Fa11.9, FeO/MnO = 21 and rims are Fa10.7, FeO/MnO = 19; pigeonite. Fs11.4Wo9.4, FeO/MnO = 13.7. Oxygen isotopes (D. Rumble, CIW): replicate analyses by laser fluorination gave d17O = 2.86 and 2.89, d18O = 7.16 and 7.37 and D17O = - 0.913 and -1.002 per mil. Very lightly weathered in the interior with low-level shock (S2). Specimens: type sample, 21.1 g, NAU: main mass, ARN, Ken Regelman
