Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CV3).

Description: History: The two stones were found by Mbark Ben Amar and Amar Azerwal. They were bought by Jean Redelsperger from Mohamed Elguirah in Tan Tan in August 2016. These two stones are likely part of ~3.7 kg of carbonaceous chondrite that were found in the area. Physical characteristics: Two black stones without fusion crust. Cut surface reveals large chondrules and small CAIs set in an abundant dark matrix. Petrography: Chondrules (average apparent diameter 740±380 μm, N=34)and irregular CAIs (to 6 mm) set in an abundant fine-grained iron-rich matrix. Opaque phases are mostly sulfides and rare metal and magnetite. Geochemistry: Olivine Fa range 0.3-39.8, average Fa10.1±12.9, PMD 97%, (N=7). Orthopyroxene Fs2.8±1.6Wo1.5±0.5 (N=2). Magnetic susceptibility log χ (× 10-9 m3/kg) = 4.29. Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CV3, oxidized subgroup). Weathering is low.
