CBa Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “CBa” classification identifies a carbonaceous chondrite from the CB group, specifically the ‘a’ subtype, known for its large chondrule-like objects and minimal refractory inclusions. This subgroup of meteorites is characterized by its considerable metal content, lack of fine-grained matrix, and features that raise questions about their formation time in solar system history.
