Yenberrie 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.

Yenberrie’s official classification is Iron, IAB-MG. The classification “Iron, IAB-MG” refers to an iron meteorite that belongs to the main group (MG) within the IAB complex. Iron meteorites are primarily composed of iron and nickel metals that solidified from a molten state, and the IAB complex encompasses various groups of these meteorites, with the main group being one of them.

The Yenberrie 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.
