Hello Matteo and List,

Haxtun was classified as an i n t e r m e d i a t e type by A.E.
Rubin. Its olivine value (Fa24.6 0.4) makes it an L chondrite but,
on the other hand, its pyroxene value (Fs17.8 1.3) clearly makes
it an H chondrite. There is a paper by A. Rubin about such ordinary
chondrites with atypical mineral compositions.

Best wishes for a
Happy New Year,
