K Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “K” classification is used for a type of meteorite known as a Kakangari chondrite, a unique group that does not align with the major chondrite classes like carbonaceous, ordinary, or enstatite chondrites. These meteorites are distinct due to their unique characteristics, but their specific petrologic type, which would detail their exact mineral composition and metamorphic history, has not yet been established.
