Introduction: Dhofar 1428 is a 213 gram lunar meteorite with little fusion crust found in Oman in 2006, and was classified as a feldspathic impact melt breccia [1]. Here, we report petrology and geochemistry of Dhofar 1428. Results and Discussion: Polished thin section (PTS) was made from a chip located adjacently to the fraction used for chemical analyses, and was examined optically and with SEM and EPMA. The PTS shows a breccia composed of lithic clasts and mineral fragments of plagioclase… CONTINUE READING
