Blue Eagle 38° 39.7 N, 115° 31.10 W

Blue Eagle Well, Railroad Valley, Nye County, NV, United States of America

Find: Mar-2006

Chondrite R3-6

History: Discovered on a dry lake bed by Ralph Clary, while he was hunting meteorites.

Physical characteristics: 31 minimally fusion crusted fragments totaling 70 g were found.

Petrography: (T. McCoy and L. Welzenbach, SI). The sample is brecciated, with several 1-4 mm chondritic clasts of variable petrologic type. Approx. 50 vol.% consists of well-defined chondrules (up to 1 mm, including PO, PP, BO, C, RP), mineral grains and chondritic fragments (mixed petrologic type up to 6) in a fine-grained silicate matrix. Minor, fine-grained Fe,Ti-oxides and sulfides occur scattered throughout the meteorite.

Mineral compositions and geochemistry: Olivine and pyroxene grains were analyzed by EMP. Olivines are nearly homogeneous (Fa38±1.5, with a small tail of analyses down to Fa10) and pyroxenes exhibit a larger range (Fs5-31).

Classification: R3-6; shock stage S2; weathering grade W1-2 (sulfides are well preserved.)

Type specimens: A13.3 g sample and one thin section are deposit at SI. Main mass is located with the Oscar Monnig Collection, Texas Christian University.
