Discovery of a MG-Dominant Analog of Kamiokite, MG_2MO_3O_8, a New Mineral from an Allende Type B1 CAI

By Chi Ma, John R. Beckett and George R. Rossman


During a nano-mineralogy investigation of the Allende\ud meteorite, two occurrences of a new Mo-Mg oxide mineral, Mg_2Mo_3O_8,\ud which we designate kamiokite-(Mg) for the purposes of this abstract, were\ud discovered in a Type B1 Ca-, Al-rich inclusion (CAI). The Mg analog of\ud kamiokite (Fe_2Mo_3O_8) has a P6_3mc structure and it occurs in the same CAI as\ud a variety of other newly-observed meteoritic minerals described by [1].\u
