Brachinite Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “Brachinite” classification denotes a type of primitive achondrite in the brachinite group, which originates from the Brachina meteorite discovered in Australia in 1974. These olivine-rich meteorites retain a composition similar to chondrites despite having lost their chondritic texture, and their exact origin remains a subject of scientific inquiry.
