Northwest Africa 817
Morocco
Found 2000 December
Martian meteorite (Nakhlite)
A 104 g stone was found in the desert of Morocco. Classification and
analysis (V. Sautter, MNHNP; J. Barrat and M. Lesourd, UAng; A.
Jambon, UPVI; P. Gillet, ENSL; C. Gvpel and J. Joron, IPGP): an
unbrecciated, medium-grained, olivine-bearing clinopyroxenite with
cumulate texture; consists of zoned, euhedral, subcalcic augite (Wo38-
40 En38-27Fs24-34 and Fe/Mn = 39-31), olivine (zoned from Fa57 in
cores to Fa86 in rims, with Fe/Mn = 54-43) with crystallized magmatic
inclusions, and a three-component intercumulus mesostasis (glass
including minute amounts of sulfide droplets, Ti-magnetite with
unusual skeletal morphology containing ilmenite exsolution, and
acicular pyroxene); mineral modes (vol%), pyroxene = 69, olivine =
15, mesostasis = 15, and Fe-Ti oxides = 1; alteration (probably pre-
terrestrial) produced a hydrous ferrous silicate both in olivine and
in the glassy mesostasis; bulk major-element composition similar to
other nakhlites; element ratios confirm Martian origin (FeO*/MnO =
37, Na/Al = 0.40, K/La = 449, Ga/Al = 3.9x10-4); has a higher
proportion of mesostasis than other nakhlites; displays the highest
Th, U and rare earth elements (REE) concentrations ever reported for
a nakhlite (e.g. Th = 0.6 ppm); REE pattern characterized by a strong
light REE enrichment (Lan/Ybn = 4.89), and Eu/Eu* = 0.90. Oxygen
isotopes (M. Javoy and E. Petit, IPGP): D17O = +0.4 permil.
Specimens: 10 g, ENSL; main mass with B. Fectay and C. Bidaut.

Northwest Africa (NWA 817) is a 104 g single stone found in the Sahara (Morocco) by meteorite hunters in November 2000. The meteorite is a non-brecciated medium grain olivine clinopyroxenite with a cumulative texture. It consists of a zoned eucalyptus subzealous augite (Wo42En38-22Fs20-36), olivine covering a wide range of compositions (from Fa56 in the nucleus to Fa86) with rare




OLIVINE ON MARCH meteorite-mars.com Mars, a planet too rich in olivine?

By the 29.05.2005 at 23:17, updated on 29.05.2005 at 23:17
The discovery of a very large Martian region rich in olivine strengthens the arguments of those who do not think that water has poured one day in abundance on the surface of Mars.

Philip Christensen (University of Arizona) and Victoria Hamilton (University of Hawaii) claim that in the volcanic region near Syrtis Major, olivine deposits extend over more than 110,000 km2, almost four times as much. we did not think. Olivine, a silicate of iron and magnesium of green color, degrades very rapidly in the presence of water.

The presence of a large amount of olivine in this ancient region of Mars would mean that water was very little present. Olivine deposits were first discovered using data from the Mars Global Surveyor. They were then supposed to extend over approximately 30,000 km2.

This time the researchers used data from Mars Odyssey's Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS). They publish their results in the journal Geology https: //www.sciencesetavenir.fr /.../ march-a-planet-too ... month of June.

This is not the first time researchers have relied on the data from these two orbiters to paint a dry, cold picture of Mars's past.
In an article published in Science in 2003, Christensen and his colleagues pointed out the absence of large expanses of carbonates, sediments whose presence would have testified to the past presence of oceans on the surface of Mars. This finding was confirmed by the team of Jean-Pierre Bibring (IAS / CNRS), who analyzed the data taken by the Omega camera Mars Express, spreading a little more the idea of ​​a hot and humid past in the world. childhood of Mars.

OLIVIN AND PYROXENE DIVERSITY IN THE CRUST OF MARS

Science

Summary: Data from the Observatory for Mineralogy, Water, Ice, and Activity (OMEGA) on the Mars Express spacecraft identify the distinct mafic, rock-forming minerals olivine, low-calcium pyroxene (LCP), and high -calcium pyroxene (HCP) on the surface of Mars. Olivine- and HCP-rich regions are found in deposits of the age range of geologic units. However, LCP-rich regions are found in the ancient Noachian-aged units, which suggests that they are derived from aluminum and calcium. Extended dark areas in the northern plains exhibit no evidence of strong mafic absorptions or absorptions due to hydrated materials.
