Aloha Meteorite Afficianados,

The Big Kahuna would like to announce a new Feldspathic Diogenite, NWA 8367. A lot of four fusion crusted stones totalling 109g stone was purchased from a Moroccan dealer in 2013. The meteorite was cut by Montana Meteorite Laboratory and a sample submitted to Tony Irving for analysis toward classification. The meteorite was acquired under the speculation that it would be paired to my NWA 6928 Noritic Diogenite, as external characteristics were almost identical. Unfortunately there is not enough plagioclase to warrent such a pairing. Dr Irving reports that NWA 8367 is an unbrecciated but moderately shocked specimen composed mainly of orthopyroxene (Fs33.6-33.7Wo2.4-2.3; FeO/MnO = 31-34) containing minor blebby exsolved clinopyroxene (Fs14.0-14.3Wo43.1-43.2, FeO/MnO = 24-25) together with ~5 vol.% calcic plagioclase (polycrystalline and partially converted to maskelynite), Ti-poor chromite, apatite and troilite. This specimen is somewhat similar to noritic diogenite NWA 6928, but has less plagioclase and is mo
re strongly shocked.

All meteorites come in a labeled display box for protection and years of viewing pleasure along with a Big Kahuna Meteorites Certificate of Authenticity / Identification Card. Shipping is additional at $4 for domestic First Class mail / $7 International First Class mail.
