DAR AL GANI 340

A single 591 g stone was found in the Libyan Sahara Desert. It was subsequently classified by C. A. Goodrich at the Max Planck Institut fur Chemie as a relatively unshocked ureilite. It has the typical texture of ureilites, with large silicate grains containing minor metal and troilite, and rimmed by graphite. Terrestrial weathering products are also evident. Cosmogenic nuclides infer a unique exposure age of 9.3 million years.
