Iron meteorite, octahedrite (IIIAB, Om)
Found 1890; 400 kg

A large Fe-Ni mass (~9.6% Ni)was found in loess. The mineralogy cited here is fairly normal for one of the IIIAb irons, but Augustinovka was recently discovered to host xenophyllite, a new Na-iron phosphate. Xenophyllite is one of the latest of several new phosphates which have been discovered in irons and stony irons. Augustinovka contains the common meteoritic phosphide, schreibersite, but apparently there was just enough oxygen available to create this unique phosphate.
