For Sale IconNWA 8667 L3.15 Chondrite Meteorites for Sale

Location: Northwest Africa, exact location unknown.

Found: Purchased 2009.

Classification: LL3.15 Unequilibrated Chondrite, (S2, W1) Reported by classifier

Description: Physical: A single 559g crusted specimen. Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS) Well-formed, fairly closely-packed chondrules (2.1 ± 1.1 mm) occur in a finer grained, metal-bearing matrix. Geochemistry: Olivine (Fa0.4-92.1; Cr2O3 in ferroan olivine 0.11-0.61 wt.%, mean 0.23 wt.%, sd 0.12 wt.%, N = 16), orthopyroxene (Fs0.5-19.1Wo4.3-5.5, N = 3), subcalcic augite (Fs19.3Wo25.1), augite (Fs7.4Wo38.7). Classification: Ordinary chondrite (LL3). The large mean chondrule size is typical of LL chondrites. The very wide range in Fa content of olivine, along with the mean value and standard deviation for Cr2O3 content of ferroan olivines, indicate that this unequilibrated specimen is of a subtype <3.2. (according to the criteria of Grossman and Brearley, 2005).

Comment: Initially, R. Anthony. Irving identified this as a likely LL3.15. Subsequently, he used magnetic susceptibility to classify it as an L3.
