Maribo meteorite, Sjælland Region, Denmark

Classification: CM2, S2

Maribo fell on 17 January 2009 in Denmark. A single stone, which broke apart, with a mass of 25.6 g was recovered. The recovery of the meteorite was announced in Meteorite Bulletin #96 (2009). Olivine is Fo-rich, but variations up to Fa85 have been found. Besides Olivine in both chondrules and matrix, ingredients include pyroxene, phyllosilicates (tochilinite, cronstedtite), sulfides (pentlandite, pyrrhotite), and minor amounts of metal. The tochilinite and cronstedtite are often intergrown. Small amounts of presolar diamonds and silicon carbide have also been detected.
