C6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The C6 classification is used for a specific kind of meteorite known as a carbonaceous chondrite, which is notable for its solar-like magnesium-to-silicon ratio and unique oxygen isotope composition. This type of meteorite, categorized as type 6, has undergone significant metamorphic changes leading to uniform mineral composition and the transformation of certain minerals, while preserving its original chondrule structures without any melting.
