Sahara 97042 / CHUNGR / Ungrouped Chondrite / End Cut With Crust 5.08g
Sahara 97042 (CHUNGR)
Size: 29 x 13 x 7 mm
End cut with crust of a unique brecciated chondrite distinct from LL group members on the basis of oxygen isotopic and chemical composition.
Sahara 97009, 97039, and 97042 have fayalite contents near the top of the LL range, but have O-isotopes and bulk composition that are distinct from LL chondrites, showing that they must have had their origin on a distinct parent body.
