C1-ung Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The C1-ung classification describes a specific kind of meteorite known as a carbonaceous chondrite, characterized by its solar-like magnesium-to-silicon ratio and distinctive oxygen isotope profile, which doesn’t fit into any established groups. This type 1 meteorite has undergone extensive alteration due to water, leading to the transformation of most of its primary minerals and the general absence of chondrules.
