NWA 7831 - DIOGENTE.  The specimen is composed almost entirely of translucent, yellow-green orthopyroxene with very sparse, tiny included grains of Ni-free metal, troilite, chromite, anorthite, silica polymorph and clinopyroxene. Secondary pale orange, clay-like deposits from terrestrial weathering are present along thin fractures.

NWA 14005.  LUNAR FELDSPATHIC BRECCIA.- This specimen is a breccia composed predominantly of sub-angular to sub-rounded anorthitic clasts (up to ~1.5 mm) and isolated mineral fragments of olivine and pyroxene set in a fine-grained matrix that contains interconnected areas of shock melt veins and trace amounts of ilmenite and troilite. Estimated modal abundances: Anorthitic plagioclase (90%), Olivine (3%), Pyroxene (3%), Shock melt veins (3%), Opaques (1%).

NWA 14061.  DIOGENITE.- Monomict breccia composed of up to 1 mm sized orthopyroxene crystals in related fine-grained clastic matrix. Contains myrmekitic intergrowth of silica and chromite. Minor phases include trolite, chromite, and silica. No feldspar has been found in the section studied. The meteorite is highly shocked and contains shock melt pockets.

Welcome to Meteorites Lab

Welcome to METEORITES LAB,  for petrographic studies, and also preparation and conservation of astromaterials for scientists and collectors, and classification of new meteorites in The Meteoritical Bulletin. Quite often I receive notifications from people who believe they have found a meteorite, and turn to me for study. For this reason, there is a Research protocol to which I can receive your samples for study and classification of astromaterials. Then I leave the information regarding this research protocol and how to proceed to submit your samples for analyses. Curation services are also offered for the preservation, documentation and preparation of samples. Uncovered thin section preparation service for the classification of meteorites and rock petrography sections for educational purposes.  AVOID LEGAL TROUBLES.   The identification of meteorites by petrographic techniques does not compromise that advanced techniques can vary sensibly or totally the appreciations obtained by p
