E Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “E” classification refers to a type of meteorite known as an enstatite chondrite, which is characterized by its unique mineral compositions, such as having magnesium-to-silicon ratios near the solar value and specific oxygen isotope compositions. This particular meteorite, however, has not been assigned to any specific group or petrologic type within the enstatite chondrites, indicating that its detailed classification is yet to be determined.
