Location: Sahara Desert, exact location unknown.

Found: 2013.

Classification: Lodranite breccia.

Description (from NWA 8118): Physical characteristics: A single breccia stone (955 g) containing prominent green clinopyroxene grains and stained kamacite. Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS) Fragmental breccia composed of mineral clasts (up to 2.8 mm) of olivine, orthopyroxene, polysynthetically-twinned clinopyroxene, troilite, stained metal, Cr-rich chromite, rare merrillite, and some composite metal grains consisting of finely intergrown kamacite+taenite+plessite). Geochemistry: Olivine (Fa11.6-11.8; FeO/MnO = 22-27), orthopyroxene (Fs10.4-12.0Wo2.7-1.7; FeO/MnO = 14-15), clinopyroxene (Fs4.4-5.1Wo44.3-43.1; FeO/MnO = 10-12).

This material is likely also paired with NWA 8251 and NWA 8216.

Comment: In our opinion, the "green-eyed Lodranite" is distinctive enough and has been studied enough to warrant presentation without further analysis.
