Relict iron Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “Relict iron” classification describes a meteorite that was originally an iron meteorite, predominantly composed of iron and nickel metal, but has since undergone significant alteration. This meteorite is now primarily made up of secondary minerals, formed due to processes it experienced on the body where it was found, making it a relict of its original iron meteoritic form.
