Dar al Gani 962, Lybia, found 1999, stony-iron ungrouped.
A single stone of 130 g was found on the Dar al Gani plateau during a systematic search by Pelisson. The cut surface reveals a metallic matrix (55 vol%) containing numerous, large, angular silicate clasts (45 vol%). Silicate clasts are cut by small metal veinlets. Mineralogy and classification (P. Sipiera, Harper): metal, kamacite and taenite in equal proportions, minor troilite (contains minor V and Cr); silicate clasts are mostly enstatite, Fs 0.11-2.28 Wo 0.64-1.84, and olivine, Fa 0.15-1.92, accessory clinopyroxene and albite-rich plagioclase. Mineralogy and petrology indicate that this meteorite is an ungrouped stony-iron.
