I was playing around with a wonderfully brecciated stone and wondered what
the ranking would be of ordinary chondrites as far as rarity.
Here is a link to a scan of the slice along with some close-up pictures of
some of the interesting regions of this "meteorite collection in a single
If anyone has an interesting observation in this slice, I would be happy to
post another close-up link of the area in question.
Has diogenite-like material been found in a chondrite matrix before?
As far as chondrite types, my guess at the ranking from most rare to least
rare is as follows:
>From most rare
To least rare
Any other ideas or, even better, does anyone (Bernd?) know some numbers that
would help decide this?
Cheers and happy viewing.
