Hello Martin and List,

Sorry I am late but I couldn't get any
mail sent. My mail server was down :-(

I do not have the density of Orgueil itself,
but here is what I found in the books:

Densities of carbonaceous chondrites:

MASON B. (1962) Meteorites, pp. 96-97:

Type I : about 2.2 / Type II: about 2.5-2.9 / Type III: 3.4-3.5

WASSON J.T. (1974) Meteorites, p. 175: Density and Porosity:

CI : 2.2-2.3 / CM : 2.6-2.9 / CO, CV : 3.3-3.6

Best wishes,
