For Sale IconClarendon(c) L4 Chondrite Meteorites for Sale

Location: Donley County, Texas, USA (34° 58' 59"N, 100° 55' 59"W)

Found: 2015 Apr 6

Classifcation: Ordinary chondrite (L4)

Description: History: Frank and DeeDee Hommel of the Bar H Working Dude Ranch located northwest of Clarendon, Texas, were out riding on their property on April 6, 2015, and report that "their horses went crazy" when they approached a large unusual rock (later determined to weigh 345 kg). They dug up additional fragments weighing about 32 kg near the large mass located at 34.983°N, 100.933°E. They contacted Eric Twelker, who arranged for testing of a specimen. Physical characteristics: The main mass (345 kg) has a reddish-brown exterior and lacks fusion crust. The relatively fresh interior is medium gray with abundant bright metal grains. Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS) Well-formed chondrules up to 3.3 mm occur within a relatively coarse-grained matrix containing abundant stained kamacite plus accessory sodic plagioclase, merrillite and troilite. Geochemistry: Olivine (Fa24.1-24.6, N = 3), orthopyroxene (Fs20.5-20.6Wo1.2-1.5, N = 3), clinopyroxene (Fs7.3-7.6Wo45.2-45.0, N = 2). Oxygen isotopes (K. Ziegler, UNM): analysis of acid-washed subsamples by laser fluorination gave, respectively, δ17O = 3.611, 3.702, 3.673; δ18O = 4.855, 4.950, 4.827; Δ17O = 1.048, 1.088, 1.124 per mil..
