EH6-an Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The EH6-an meteorite classification refers to a highly specialized enstatite chondrite from the high-iron EH group, recognized as petrologic type 6 with unique, distinctive features. This type of meteorite is characterized by its thorough metamorphism, which results in uniform mineral composition, transformation of low-calcium pyroxene to orthopyroxene, and the significant growth of minerals like feldspar, alongside its notable small chondrules, significant silicon-rich metallic content, and an extremely reduced mineral composition.
