Euhedral crystals in interstitial pores of the Baszkówka and Mt. Tazerzait L5 chondrites

Frank Wlotzka, Jürgen Otto


Euhedral to anhedral crystals of the main meteoritic minerals are found in interstitial pores of the unshocked L5 chondrites Baszkówka and Mt. Tazerzait. The composition of these pore minerals is the same as elsewhere in the meteorite. They must have grown from a vapour phase during metamorphic equilibration of the meteorite minerals. The pores are primary features, i.e. open space remaining after compaction of the constituents of the meteorite.
