We present magnetic measurements, chemical analyses, and petrographic observations of the poorly Studied Asco historical meteorite fall (1805). These new data indicate that this meteorite has been previously misclassified as an L6 ordinary chondrite. Asco is reclassified as an H6 ordinary chondrite with shock stage S3. An interesting feature of this meteorite is the presence of chrornite-plagioclase assemblages with variable textures.

Abstract

We present magnetic measurements, chemical analyses, and petrographic observations of the poorly Studied Asco historical meteorite fall (1805). These new data indicate that this meteorite has been previously misclassified as an L6 ordinary chondrite. Asco is reclassified as an H6 ordinary chondrite with shock stage S3. An interesting feature of this meteorite is the presence of chrornite-plagioclase assemblages with variable textures.
