NWA 2824 Meteorite Thin Section

Cross polarized thin section of NWA 2824, a diogenite with a multitude of white-gray needle like inclusions which, in their color and texture, resemble those found in the Ibitira Meteorite Thin Section. These are described as “Plagioclase recrystallized into complex spherulitic textures.”  See this link for more classification information on diogenites.

Impactika has nice close-up images of the the plagioclase textures: TS Image 1 and TS Image 2
