NWA 6925, Multiple Lithologies L3.15 Chondrite, Micromount


NWA 6925 is an interesting meteorite that was recovered from the Saharan Desert in Morocco (March 2011). This meteorite is loaded with chondrules and has at least two different lithologies - a lighter colored zone with fewer chondrules, and a dark zone with plentiful chondrules. There is also some variation between the two lithologies, and there are inclusions that resemble (visually) CAI's often seen in CV3 meteorites. In fact, some sliced pieces look a lot like a CV3. This meteorite was analyzed by Dr. Tony Irving at UWS. So far, this is the only L3.15 ever classified. There have been a few LL3.15 meteorites, but so far, this is the sole L3.15.
