Wietrzenie w meteorycie Nantan (porównanie wybranych wtórnych faz mineralnych z meteorytów Nantan i Morasko)

Title variants
Weathering in the Nantan meteorite (comparison of selected secondary mineral phases of the Nantan and Morasko meteorites)
Languages of publication
The main products of terrestrial weathering of metallic phases in Nantan meteorite are represented by: goethite, lepidocrocite and others nonstructural Fe-hydroxides with differ hydratation ratio. Sometimes iron hydroxides are associated with high-nickel phases. Hydrated iron phosphates are observed like, e.g. vivianite, in vicinity schreibersite. Only phosphides, relics of taenite and the hight-nickel phases are preserved in strongly weathered specimens. Generally, both the process of weathering and the types of secondary phases are similar in Nantan and Morasko meteorites. The differences are very small and are caused by slightly different chemical composition of both meteorites.
