Meteorites from these first, primitive asteroids are called chondrites .
Carbonaceous chondrites are comparatively rich in mineralogically bound OH.
Aeroliths are further subdivided into two classes: chondrites and achondrites.
The various chondrite groups likely originated on separate asteroids or groups of related asteroids.
chondrites are often considered to be “the building blocks of the planets.
So-called carbonaceous chondrites are especially fertile reservoirs of stardust.
Carbonaceous chondrites are among the more precious and intriguing classes of Meteorites.
chondrite (n) A type of meteorite containing mineral spheres called chondrules.
Some meteorites, such as carbonaceous chondrites , contain carbonaceous material.

From the carbonaceous chondrites , we follow the trail to the most primitive materials.
Measurements of the resulting isotope ratios closely approximated those found in carbonaceous chondrite meteorites.
chondrites can be differentiated from iron meteorites due to their low iron and nickel content.
chondrites contain many small globules of olivine, pyroxene and other compounds rich in carbon.
S-types may share their composition with stony-iron or ordinary chondrite (OC) meteorites.
