NWA 7831 - Diogenite - NW AFrica - Description language - German

Found buried in the ground near Chouichiyat on March 3, 2013, and excavated by a team of local people. A single large mass (at least 20 kg) composed of yellow-green crystalline material with pale orange weathering products along numerous fractures. Much of the material disintegrated into fragments upon excavation. The specimen is composed almost entirely of translucent, yellow-green orthopyroxene with very sparse, tiny included grains of Ni-free metal, troilite, chromite, anorthite, silica polymorph and clinopyroxene. Secondary pale orange, clay-like deposits from terrestrial weathering are present along thin fractures.
