Two vivid silicates are imbedded within this acquired lodranite: spring-green colored pyroxene and yellow-brown olivine crystals. Lodranites are a part of a very small group of primitive achondrites containing meteoritic iron and silicate minerals of mostly olivine and pyroxene. Often we expect olivine crystals to be the prominent silicate, but we find that the pyroxene crystals within this meteorite have rivaled our previous presumptions.
