CK5/6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The CK5/6 meteorite classification denotes a type of carbonaceous chondrite from the CK (Karoonda-like) group, which is distinguished by a blend of finely milled matrix material and chondrules. These meteorites exhibit characteristics of both petrologic types 5 and 6, indicating a range of metamorphism where minerals are significantly altered and homogenized, reflecting a complex history of thermal processing and structural changes within this group.
