Abstract Many new meteorites representing rare achondrite (extraterrestrial igneous rocks) groups are being recovered from both hot and cold deserts. A significant fraction of these meteorites are both coarse-grained (grain size> 1 cm) in texture and small in size (mass < 100 g), making accurate determinations of their bulk rock chemical composition rather challenging.
