From the Meteoritical Bulletin, No. 85, September, 2001:
Agoult - Found in Morocco, March 2000, 30° 33' N., 4° 54' W.
Classified as Achondrite (unbrecciated eucrite)
An 82 gram stone was found by a person prospecting for meteorites. Mineralogy and classification (J. Barrat, UAng; P. Gillet, ENSL): a crusted stone; broken surfaces show a himogenious, sugary textured interior; many 120 degree contacts are present between grains. Pyroxene ranges from Fs58.9 Wo4.4 to Fs30.6 Wo41.1. Bulk composition shows a flat rare earth pattern with a small positive Eu anomaly.
Subsequent to the original find, another specimen weighing 400 grams was discovered. It is from this specimen that I am offering the following pieces.
