Carbonaceous chondrite, type CV3

Vigarano, a carbonaceous chondrite (CV3-red.), was observed to fall on 22 January 1910 near the village of Vigarano Pieve (Vigarano Mainarda municipality), west of Ferrara. The main mass (also named "Cariani meteorite") weighed 11.5 kg and was found immediately, whilst a second part of 4.5 kg (which was named "Morandi meteorite") was recovered weeks later, a few hundred metres from the main mass (Rosati, 1910a and 1910b). Until recently, only 4–5 kg of the original mass was preserved in different museums around the world. The rediscovery of 7 kg of material belonging to the main mass increased the total preserved mass of the Vigarano meteorite to 12 kg (Trevisani, 2010 and 2011). Vigarano is the prototype for the CV (Vigarano-like) Carbonaceous Chondrite Group. Chemically, CV Chondrites are defined by a near-solar Mg/Si ratio and by their oxygen isotope ratios. Mineralogically, the CV carbonaceous chondrites are distinguished by large chondrules, large refractory inclusions, and abundant matrix. Only 7 CV falls have been recorded. While Vigarano is the CV prototype, it is the largest member of the (relatively) 'reduced' subgroup of CV Chondrites (which also includes Efremovka and Leoville). Allende, a later and much larger 1969 fall, is a member of the oxidized subgroup. Just to confuse matters, however, Vigarano also has a few ‘oxidized’ inclusions presumably due to mild aqueous alteration.

Vigarano is one of the two carbonaceous chondrites in which has been discovered warkite, a new scandium aluminate mineral (Ca2Sc6Al6O20 - IMA 2013-169) with a P-1 aenigmatite-type structure. In the studied section, it occurs as 4-12 μm aggregates of 1-4 μm crystals associated with perovskite, gehlenitic melilite, and davisite (Ma et al., 2014; Ma et al., 2015).

Vigarano is one of the three carbonaceous chondrites in which has been discovered rubinite, a new member of the garnet group (IMA 2016-110) and the Ti3+-analog of eringaite Ca3Sc2Si3O12, goldmanite Ca3V2Si3O12, uvarovite Ca3Cr2Si3O12, or andradite Ca3Fe2Si3O12 (Ma et al., 2017a and 2017b). Like eringaite, rubinite is among the first solid materials in the solar nebula; it formed either as a condensate or through crystallisation from an 16O-rich Ca, Al, and Ti-rich melt under highly-reduced conditions. In the studied section, rubinite occurs as irregular to subhedral crystals, measuring ~0.5‒1 μm, in the central portion of an ultra-refractory fragment with Zr-panguite, spinel and davisite-diopside, all enclosed within an amoeboid olivine aggregate.
