About Acapulcoite meteoriteHide

Acapulcoites, named after the Acapulco, Mexico, fall of 1913, and lodranites, named after the Lodran, Pakistan, fall of 1868, are closely related, equigranular meteorites; acapulcoites are finer grained than lodranites and contain rare, relict chondrules, and there are transitional meteorites between the two types (e.g., EET 84302, GRA 95209). Mineral assemblages are similar to, but distinct from those of ordinary chondrites. Compositions are subchondritic, with lodranites showing a higher degree of fractionation.

Meteoritical Society Code: Acapulcoite
