EH6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The EH6 classification refers to a meteorite from the high-iron EH group of enstatite chondrites, known for their unique composition, including small chondrules and a high concentration of silicon-rich metal. This meteorite is classified as petrologic type 6, indicating it has undergone significant metamorphism, leading to the homogenization of its mineral composition, the transformation of certain minerals, and the coarsening of secondary phases, resulting in a markedly altered structure compared to its original state.
