Location: Northwest Africa, exact location unknown.

Found: ~2015

Classification: IIAB Hexahedrite Iron

Description: Petrography: Iron is a hexahedrite. It contains three round FeS nodules in an area of ~150 cm2. Fragmental schreibersites 0.2 to 1 mm long are in rough arrays. There is discoloration indicating some reheating in the event that fragmented the schreibersites. In regions not discolored there are many tiny rhabdites 0.2 to 0.1 mm in length. Weathering is minor. but no reheated zone was recognized. Geochemistry: Composition: Co, 4.50 mg/g; Ni, 56.1 mg/g; Ga, 58.0 μg/g; Ge, ~153 μg/g; As, 4.16 μg/g; W, 3.12 μg/g; Ir 11.4 μg/g; Au, 0.548 μg/g. Classification: Meteorite is a IIAB iron, towards the upper end of the Ir range. Based on its composition, it is paired with NWA 3202. Classification by John Wasson, UCLA.

Note: All of the samples shown below show rhabdites and Neumann lines on both a fine macroscopic and hand lens scale. Many of the pieces also show a distinct reheating zone that was noted, but not observed in the studied sample.
