Yamato 983352 is considered a “Valid” meteorite. “Valid” meteorites are typical meteorites with average weathering, while “relict” meteorites are those that have been extremely altered, either due to weathering over time or human intervention.

Yamato 983352’s official classification is Eucrite-br. The “Eucrite-br” classification indicates a brecciated type of achondrite from the eucrite group, characterized by a composition without chondrules and an origin from a differentiated celestial body. These meteorites, primarily composed of Fe-rich pyroxene and Na-poor plagioclase, are a common type of basaltic achondrite, sharing geochemical properties with diogenites and howardites within the HED meteorite group, and possibly associated with asteroid 4 Vesta.

The Yamato 983352 meteorite is a “Found” meteorite. Meteorites are classified as “falls” if they were observed falling and recovered, while “finds” are those discovered later, often weathered by longer exposure to Earth’s environment and without a record of being seen as they fell.
