CI1 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “CI1” classification denotes a carbonaceous chondrite from the CI group, known for its Ivuna-type chemical properties, including the lack of chondrules and refractory inclusions and a high level of hydration. This type 1 meteorite has undergone extensive aqueous alteration, resulting in the transformation of most primary minerals into secondary phases, and typically lacks chondrules.
