Lodranites

This group of primitive achondrites is named for the type specimen, Lodran, a meteorite that fell in Pakistan in 1868. There are only 11 members in this group, and nearly all of them have been found in the blue-ice fields of Antarctica. It is somewhat of a mystery why no new lodranite specimens have been discovered thus far as part of the wealth of new meteorites coming from the hot deserts of Africa and Asia.

Initially, the lodranites were grouped with the stony-iron meteorites since they contain components of both stony material, consisting of olivine, orthopyroxene, and minor plagioclase, and nickel-iron metal in nearly equal proportions. However, since the discovery of the closely related acapulcoite group, the lodranites have been classified as primitive achondrites. Because both groups share similar mineralogical and oxygen isotopic compositions, it is thought that they are derived from the same parent body, most likely an S-type asteroid that has not yet been identified. Lodranites have coarser-grained olivines and pyroxenes and experienced higher temperatures than acapulcoites; these facts indicate that the lodranites have their origin within the deeper layers of the acapulcoite/lodranite parent body where they were subjected to a more intense and prolonged thermal processing.

Outside Lodran, it's the first lodranite to be available for the collectors
