E6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The E6 classification refers to a specific type of meteorite, known as an enstatite chondrite, that is characterized by unique mineral compositions and has undergone extensive metamorphic changes without melting, but hasn’t been placed into a specific subgroup yet. These meteorites are notable for their composition close to the Earth’s and for having undergone significant changes that homogenize minerals and alter their structure, but they remain unmelted.
