421g sample of 1879 Tenham meteorite from the remote Australian outback near Tenham station, Queensland, Australia. The specimen was from a researcher/collector named Wayne Walton is now owned by @FossilLocator.
Per @fossillocator “Tenham is well studied because it contains rare deep mantle minerals, such as ringwoodite and brigdmanite, which should exist in the mantle but are so deep only two specimens of ringwoodite have been discovered on earth in deep mantle diamonds found in Brazil. Ringwoodite is one of the mineral structures that locks up hydroxide water and is why there’s more water in the mantle than on Earth’s surface”.
