# of fragments : 7
Place : Acfer
Meteoritical Bulletin n°90 (2006)
Classified by : MNHN
Paris & Blaise Pascal University - Clt. Fd.
Type : L3 (non equilibrated)
Shock stage : S5
Weathering grade : W1
%Fa : 20,4 +/- 4%
%Fs : 14,8 +/- 4,8%
Remarks : Quite
fresh with fusion crust, it is a beautiful chondrite. Found near by
Acfer 336 & Acfer 337, those 3 meteorites are different from each
other, from their structures and weathering grades.
In spite of %Fa = 20,4 +/- 4%, observation under optical microscope shows
that Acfer 341 is a type L chondrite.
But additional analyses would be necessary to determine precisely if it is
a 3.7 or a 3.8 type. Nomenclature Committee has decided to classify it as a L3 (MB90 - 2006)
