Location: Northwest Africa, exact location unknown.

Found: 2003

Type: Mesosiderite-C

Description: Several stones totaling 17 kg of the same meteorite were purchased in Talsit in 2003 April and May. Classification and mineralogy (A. Jambon and O. Boudouma, UPVI): breccia consisting of orthopyroxene clasts (> 5 mm) and orthopyroxene-rich matrix with rare plagioclase. No lithic plagioclase or olivine clasts were observed. Metal is bimodal, mm-sized large blebs and small spots in matrix. Orthopyroxene, FeO/MnO = 30.4, En68Fs30Wo2; plagioclase, An89-92; low-Ni metal; troilite, Ca-phosphate, silica. Mineral modes: metal, 25 vol%, troilite, 5 vol%, plagioclase, ~3 vol%, orthopyroxene, 63.3 vol%. A mesosiderite tentatively assigned to class C as NWA 1827.  Pairing of the two was suggested by T. Bunch although NWA 1827 does contain plagioclase clasts.
