10.86 g. Full slice of NWA 12801, CK3, S2, W - moderate
Meteorite Name: Northwest Africa 12800
Abbreviation: NWA 12800
Observed fall: No
Year found: 2018
Country: (Northwest Africa)
Main Mass: 250 g.
Type, group, subgroup: Stone, ordinary chondrite, CK3
Specimen Weight: 10.86 grams
Approximate Measurements: 63 mm x 44 mm x 2 mm
Physical characteristics: Two dark-grayish fragments without fusion crust.
Petrography: The meteorite displays a brownish interior and is composed of several well defined chondrules (mean diameter about 700 μm) set into abundant recrystallized matrix. Compositionally equilibrated Fe-rich olivine is the dominant mineral phase in the matrix. Olivine and low-Ca pyroxene are compositionally zoned in most chondrules. Minor phases include intermediate plagioclase, Ca-pyroxene, and troilite. Cr-rich magnetite is abundant; metal was not detected. The meteorite appears brecciated.
Geochemistry: unequilibrated olivine: Fa20.9±4.4 (Fa15.0-25.5, n=11); unequilibrated low-Ca pyroxene: Fs14.9±7.8Wo0.4±0.1 (Fs3.8-23.3Wo0.3-0.5, n=14); Fe-rich matrix olivine: Fa29.5±0.9, FeO/MnO=115±13, n=13; low-Ca matrix pyroxene: Fs24.3±0.7Wo1.0±0.2, n=18; matrix Ca-pyroxene: Fs10.0±1.4Wo43.6±4.6, n=5; matrix feldspar: An25.7±7.5Ab69.3±6.3Or5.1±1.4, n=6
|Fayalite (mol%):||20.9; 29.5|
