NWA 1950

SNC Lherzolithic Peridotite

The members of this subgroup are cumulate, ultramafic rocks of plutonic origin, resembling terrestrial lherzolites and harzburgites. They consist primarily of medium-grained olivine and chromite that are poikilitically enclosed by large orthopyroxene crystals. Minor interstitial areas of plagioclase glass (maskelynite) occur, and clinopyroxenes with accessory oxides and phosphates are present. The lherzolitic shergottites probably crystallized as cumulates from residual melts in magma chambers, and they share many mineralogical and chemical features with the basaltic shergottites. The  lherzolitic members are five finds from the ice fields of Antarctica - ALH 77005, Yamato 793605, LEW 88516, Yamato 1075, and GRV 9927. The unique Lherzolite ouside Antarctica is NWA 1950, the freshest of all the group.
