Primitive achondrites are meteorites that have mineral and bulk chemical compositions similar to the most primitive meteorites (chondrites) but have textures similar to more evolved meteorites (achondrites). The unique geochemistry and texture of the primitive achondrites suggest these meteorites may be genetic intermediates between chondrites and achondrites and may preserve evidence of processes occurring in the early solar system. Five primitive achondrites LEW 88280, MAC 88177, ALHA 81187, EET 84302, and LEW 88663 were examined in this study in order to classify the meteorites and to determine processes that have affected them. Bulk chemical analyses of Nap, K2O, CaO, FeO, Cr, Co, Ni, Sc, Ir, Au, As, Sb, Se, Br, Cs, Ba, La, Ce, Nd, Sm, Eu, Tb, Yb, and Lu were determined for each meteorite by Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA). Concentrations of Hf, U, and Th were determined for some meteorites. Polished thin sections of the five meteorites were examined in transmitted and reflected light microscopy to identify minerals and examine petrographic relationships. Minerals found in the meteorites include olivine, orthopyroxene, clinopyroxene, plagioclase, Cr-spinel, phosphates, troilite, kamecite, and taenite along with other minor phases. Mineral compositions were determined with an electron microprobe. The initial study suggests that the meteorites have been altered by metamorphic processes although igneous processes may also have played a role in the evolution of these rocks. Further studies of isotope and bulk chemistry are planned for these meteorites.
