EH Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “EH” classification refers to a type of meteorite known as an enstatite chondrite, belonging to the EH group, which is characterized by its sub-solar magnesium-to-silicon ratio and specific oxygen isotope composition. These meteorites are unique for their high-iron content, small chondrules, and highly reduced mineral assemblages, including notable amounts of silicon-rich metal, but their precise petrologic type within the enstatite chondrite category has not been determined.
