Antarctica

Find: 2014 Nov 21

Classification: Carbonaceous chondrite (CM2)

Petrography: The section consists of a few small chondrules (~22 vol %, <~100 μm to ~2 mm in diameter), CAIs (~2 vol%), and matrix (~76 vol%) with carbonate, sulfides, and phyllosilicates. Fe-Ni metal is very rare (<0.1 vol%). The chondrules have experience varying ° of aqueous alteration. The matrix occurs as fine-grained rims surrounding chondrules.
