CK3 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The CK3 classification pertains to a specific type of meteorite within the carbonaceous chondrite category, belonging to the CK (Karoonda) group, known for its composition similar to the sun’s and unique oxygen isotope characteristics. This type 3 meteorite is in an early stage of metamorphism, indicated by a high presence of chondrules, minimal alteration from water, and minerals that are still in an early stage of chemical adjustment, maintaining much of their original composition and structure.
