U-Pb systematics of the unique achondrite Ibitira: Precise age determination and petrogenetic implications

Iizuka, Tsuyoshi; Amelin, Yuri; Kaltenbach, Angela; Koefoed, Piers; Stirling, Claudine H


Ibitira is an unbrecciated, equilibrated vesicular basaltic achondrite that is considered to have originated on a parent body distinct from all other known meteorites. We present the first combined high-precision U and Pb isotopic data for this unique meteorite. The 238U/235U value of 137.777±0.013 determined for the whole rock is comparable to values determined for bulk chondrites and other basaltic achondrites. This value results in corrections of -1.1Ma for Pb-Pb dates calculated using the...[Show more]
