  • In the Saint Aubin octahedrite, chromite crystals of up to 3 cm occur enclosed in the metal phase. They are twinned along [111] according to the spinel law and display pseudohexagonal shapes in cross-sections. The crystals are homogeneous and exhibit compositions close to pure chromite endmember. Vanadium is the only additional element observed in appreciable amounts of up to 0.73 wt%. Chromite in the Saint Aubin meteorite crystallized from liquids with very low amounts of Cr and O close to the… CONTINUE READING
