E5-an Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The E5-an classification refers to an enstatite chondrite at petrologic type 5, which is not yet assigned to a specific group and exhibits unique properties not typical of its class. This type of meteorite is characterized by its significant metamorphic changes, such as the unification of olivine and pyroxene mineral compositions and the blurring of chondrule outlines, combined with unusual features that set it apart from other enstatite chondrites.
