The unusual metallic particles in Krymka LL3.0 chondriteThe composition, structure peculiarities, and possible scenario of formation of unusual metallic particles in Krymka LL3.0 are shown. In metal released from gentle crushed after removal of chondrules of Krymka LL3.0 chondrite matter, two types of unusual metallic particles were detected. The first type of particle mainly consists of coarse-grained (greater than or equal to 50 microns) kamacite and fine-grained (less than or equal to 10 microns) Ni-high (approximately 53 wt. percent) taenite. These particles have well-defined zonal structure: kamacite is in central part of particles whereas taenite is in outside and the grains of taenite form the mantle around kamacite. In the second type of particle Fe,Ni-phase contains only fine-grained Ni-rich taenite. In both particle types there are also fine-grained phosphate, troilite, and silicate. Both particle types have mostly rounded to subrounded form.
