CR2-an Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “CR2-an” classification refers to a unique type of carbonaceous chondrite from the CR group, identified as petrologic type 2 but with anomalous characteristics that set it apart from typical members of this group. These meteorites are marked by their large, porphyritic chondrules with igneous rims and a hydrated fine-grained matrix, but also display distinct properties not commonly seen in standard CR group chondrites.
