IRONS

GREIN 005

(medium octahedrite, IIIAB)

Iron, IIIAB
Erg du Ténéré, Agadez District, Republic of Niger
Find: November 2015
TKW: 52.5 kg (one mass)
Individual 51 kg

History: Found in November 2015 exposed on the surface by artisanal miners while prospecting for gold between Tehmet and Djado in the Tènéré Tafassasset. Click here for full find documention and report of associated masses.

Physical characteristics: The 52 kg mass is 39 × 25 × 18 cm and has the shape of a longitudinally split cone with the cone section showing minor concavity while the opposite surface is distinctly convex. Numerous regmaglypts measuring 1-3 cm across and 1-1.5 cm deep are present, and at least one troilite inclusion is observed. The specimen is coated with a thick layer of dark brown desert varnish.

Petrography: Polished sections display a well-developed Widmannstätten pattern of a medium octahedrite with a mean kamacite bandwidth of 1.0±0.2 mm. Neumann bands are visible within kamacite. Schreibersite and graphite are absent in the sections observed. Troilite is present in the form of rounded and bar-shaped inclusions ranging from 2-20 mm across the longest axis, partly surrounded by thin swathing kamacite. Fractures up to 1 mm wide penetrate the meteorite along the kamacite lamellae and are filled with terrestrial oxides, otherwise the interior weathering is very moderate. Fusion crust and heat-affected zones are mostly absent.

Huoyanshan

Iron, IAB-sLH, finest Octahedrite

IAB-sLH, finest octahedrite
Xinjiang, China
Find: 2016, Oct. 6
TKW: 700 kg
Endcut 94.35 g

“The find site is 15 km NE of the Mountain Huoyanshan, which was noted in the famous 16th century novel, “A Journey to the West,” as having emerged from pieces of charcoal on fire falling from Heaven” (meteoritical Bulletin no. 106).

This is a 94.35 g endcut with beautiful etch and one natural surface. With a band width of only <0.035 mm, Huoyanshan hides its beauty in the submillimeter range. Viewed with a loupe or stereo microscope, the iron reveals a unique, cryptographic pattern, perpetuating in bizarre cuneiform. Huoyanshan is hard to acquire, difficult to etch, and even more challenging to photograph, yet truly one of the most rewarding meteoritic irons to study.
