Mineralogical and spectroscopic investigation of enstatite chondrites by X-ray diffraction and infrared reflectance spectroscopy

Izawa, M; King, Penelope; Flemming, R.L.; Peterson, R.C.; McCausland, P.J.A.


The mineralogy and infrared reflectance spectra of 13 Enstatite (E) chondrite meteorite finds spanning the full range of textural alteration grades in both EL and EH classes have been investigated. Rietveld refinement of high-resolution powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) data was used to determine quantitative major mineral abundances. Sample-correlated mid-infrared (2.0 to 25.0 m; 4500 cm-1 to 400 cm-1) reflectance infrared spectra were collected for each meteorite. Spectral features due to the...[Show more]
