Unequilibrated ordinary chondrite, brecciated (L3.7; S2; W0)
Witnessed Fall, 4 September 1852; 22.7 kg

After a bolide and detonations, a shower of stones fell — including a ~10 kg stone. In thin sections the predominant constituents are clearly delineated chondrules (esp. porphyritic olivine-pyroxene [POP] and radial pyroxene [RP]) within a background matrix with fragments, grains, and inclusions of other silicates, Fe-Ni metal, troilite, and numerous smaller items of diverse origin. Overall olivine has a mean composition of Fa21.7±6 which includes both occasional forsteritic chondrules and frequent fayalitic rims. Clinopyroxene-orthopyroxene intergrowths provide additional evidence of disequilibrium. Glass and carbon are volumetrically minor, but ubiquitous. Many chondrules are surrounded by chains of Fe-metal and troilite.

Merrihueite was found in a few chondules of the (L3) chondrite meteorite, as inclusions in clinopyroxenes. Associated by fayalitic olivine and nickel-iron.

NOTE: The place, the Mezömadaras village in Romania, where this meteorite fell on the 4th September of 1852 is not in Harghita Co., as it appears in almost all catalogues, but in Mures Co. The misunderstanding probably happened because in Harghita county there is also a Madaras village (and the coordinates given in the catalogues point exactly to this), but this is Csikmadaras, not Mezömadaras. Mezömadaras, the true place of the meteorite fall, is in Mures Co., 12.5 km west from Tirgu Mures. The "Weiler" mentioned in the NHM catalogue is a German word for hamlet.

The Mezö-Madaras meteorite is one of only 44 witnessed unequilibrated ordinary chondrite (UOC) falls listed at the Meteoritical Bulletin Database (early September 2015). Mezö-Madaras and Ceniceros (a 1988 fall) are the only UOC falls currently listed specifically as petrologic type L3.7.
