Libyan Desert Glass, Libyan Desert, Eqypt

   MM024

   LIBYAN DESERT GLASS

  Libyan Desert, Eqypt

   Large chunks of  natural glass were first

   found in the remote desert of Egypt in 1932.

   Evidence indicates that the glass was formed

   by a high velocity impact of a large body over

   28 million years ago. Lack of included mater-

   ial and some unusual properties of the glass

     leave many questions on the origin of this glass unanswered.

     Specimen size: approx.  4 cm  X  3.1 cm  X  2.3 cm        Weight: 28 grams

Millbillillie achondrite, Wiluna District, W. Australia

   MM026

   MILLBILLILLIE EUCRITE

   Wiluna District, W. Australia

   The fall was witnessed by two station

    workers in 1960 but specimens were not

    collected until 1970. This meteorite is a

    mixture of breccias and impact melts. This

    small sample shows typical black, glossy

    fusion crust and orange clay coating.

 

 

      Specimen size: approx. 3cm  X  2.2 cm  X  2.2 cm        Weight: 24 grams

 

  

Huckitta pallasite, Northern Territory, Australia

   MM027

   HUCKITTA PALLASITE

   Northern Territory, Australia

   This pallasite has been weathered to the

    point where the groundmass has oxidized

    to mostly hematite and magnetite. The

    olivine has a high iron content and the

    crystals are intact. The elemental makeup

    of Huckitta meteorites is unusual.

    

 

   Specimen size: approx. 2.8 cm  X  2.6 cm  X  1.7 cm        Weight: 26 grams

    helped keep the meteorite intact with a thin

    rust layer despite an estimated terrestrial age

    of 2000 years.

   

   

 

 

     Specimen size: approx.  14.8 cm  X  10.5 cm  X  4.6 cm        Weight: 1097 grams

   CHINGA ATAXITE

  Tanna Tuva, Turvinskaya, Russia

   characteristic of treatment given Chinga ataxites.

   The high nickel content in Chinga ataxites

   suppresses the formation of Widmanstatten

   patterns.

     complex origin for these meteorites.
