Metbull:Search meteorite in Meteoritical Bulletin Database
Single stone, purchased by F. Kuntz in Erfoud, Morocco, January 2013
Very small chondrules set in dark brown matrix.
Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CO3.1) based on mean Cr2O3=0.26±0.14 wt% in ferroan olivines, values plotting closer to Colony (CO3.0) than to Rainbow (CO3.2) as reported by Grossman and Brearley (2005).
Museums in region:


A broad region, mostly desert, of northwestern Africa associated with meteorite finds. Meteorites are frequently found in the desert and sold at markets in Morocco, etc, without it being clear exactly where within the region they came from, so these finds generally should only be allocated to this region rather than a specific country unless the exact fall location is known with some confidence.

Note: some meteorites have been incorrectly entered with the location of purchase rather than the fall location. These should be moved here.

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
