Ti-Fe oxide, TiFeO3, found in achondrites, lunar Broad low plains surrounded by basin-forming mountains, originally thought to be a sea (pl. maria). This term is applied to the basalt-filled impact basins common on the face of the Moon visible from Earth. basalts, and Igneous stony meteorite with a Martian origin consisting mainly of plagioclase (or a shocked glass of plagioclase composition) and pyroxene. They are the most abundant type of SNC meteorites and the type member is the Shergotty meteorite, which fell in India in 1865. Shergottites are igneous rocks of volcanic or. Ilmenite forms as a primary Inorganic substance that is (1) naturally occurring (but does not have a biologic or man-made origin) and formed by physical (not biological) forces with a (2) defined chemical composition of limited variation, has a (3) distinctive set of of physical properties including being a solid, and has a (4) homogeneous in mafic igneous rocks. It crystallizes relatively early out of a Molten silicate (rock) beneath the surface of a planetary body or moon. When it reaches the surface, magma is called lava. before most of the other minerals, and as a result, the heavier crystals of ilmenite precipitate to the bottom of the magma chamber.
