  H3-7

TKW 213 grams. Fall not observed. Bought June 2017, Erfoud, Morocco.

Currently the only approved meteorite classified as H3-7.

 


Hanno writes:
When we bought this individual we thought it could be a metall rich primitive achondrite. maybe a Lodranite. After cutting we were surprised, because it looked so different and unusual. The final classification result was a H3 matrix with embedded H4-7 clasts. The type 7 clasts show a thoroughly recrystallized texture with abundant 120 degree grain boundaries.

Both undifferentiated and, at the same time, achondritic ... very interesting. Looking forward to scientific papers about this "achondritic chondrite"!
