Aubrite Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “Aubrite” classification identifies a type of achondrite meteorite, part of the aubrite group, which is named after the meteorite that fell in Aubres, France, in 1836. Aubrites are known for their enstatite composition, mostly brecciated structure with various clasts, and a highly reduced mineralogy that suggests a different origin than other enstatite chondrites.
