Northwest Africa 11336 (NWA 11336)

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 1996

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (LL3)

History: Purchased by Ken Regelman in 1996 from a Moroccan dealer.

Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS) Fairly closely packed, well-formed chondrules (apparent diameter 700400 μm, N = 12) are accompanied by a finer grained matrix containing altered metal.

Geochemistry: Olivine (Fa0.4-41.3, Cr2O3 in ferroan examples <0.04 wt.%, N = 7), orthopyroxene (Fs3.6-15.3Wo0.3-0.7, N = 3), subcalcic augite (Fs10.5Wo34.1; Fs21.7Wo27.5, N = 2). Magnetic susceptibility log χ ( 10-9 m3/kg) = 4.07.

Classification: Ordinary chondrite (LL3).

Specimens: 22.7 g including one polished thin section at UWB; remainder with Mr. K. Regelman.
