Sorry I was too fast :-(

Hi Paul and List,

I can only offer what you also find in the Met. Bulletin
No. 85, 2001, July, but Marvin might have some details:

Temple Bar, CR chondrite
low shock stage; W5
Mohave County, Arizona
35 55' N / 114 26' W
Find 1998, autumn
106 gr; main mass, SWML; 23 gr, ASU;

A 106 gr stone was found by a prospector near the road, 7 miles south
of Temple Bar. Classification and mineralogy (M. Killgore, SWML):
chondrules range from 0.4 to 4 mm, and comprise ~50 vol%; metal
occurs mostly inside chondrules; brownish-yellow phyllosilicates
present; olivine Fa2.3 (range 0.7-4.3, n = 10); probably little
shocked; weathering grade, W5. Specimens: main mass, SWML;
23 gr, ASU (Met.Bull. 85, 2001 July).

Best regards,
