EL-melt rock Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “EL-melt rock” classification describes a meteorite from the EL (low-iron) group of enstatite chondrites, recognized for their specific chemical and mineral composition, including moderately large chondrules and a significant presence of silicon-bearing metal. This meteorite has undergone a melting process, distinguishing it from other enstatite chondrites in the EL group, which typically exhibit highly reduced mineral assemblages and specific oxygen isotope ratios.
