E3-an Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The E3-an classification describes a type of enstatite chondrite meteorite, which is known for its unique chemical composition, closely resembling that of the solar system, and reduced mineral assemblages. This meteorite falls under petrologic type 3, indicating it contains abundant chondrules and has undergone minimal alteration, but it is also characterized by anomalous properties, setting it apart from typical members of its class and not fitting neatly into any established subgroup.
