C3.0-ung Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The C3.0-ung classification describes a carbonaceous chondrite meteorite that is in its earliest stage of metamorphism, indicated by the petrologic type 3.0, and remains ungrouped, meaning it does not fit into any of the known subcategories of carbonaceous chondrites, which are notable for their close-to-solar Mg/Si ratios and distinct oxygen isotope compositions.
