Martian shergottite meteorite,
Find, 1997; 588 g.

A 588 g complete stone covered with desert varnish was collected in the Dar al Gani region. The meteorite is a porphyritic basalt with mm-sized zone olivines in a finer-grained matrix of pigeonite and feldspathic glass. The meteorite may be paired with DaG 476, but it is less weathered.
