Carbonaceous Chondrites are a subclass of the chondrite family of stony meteorites which as the name states have much more carbon in them than ordinary chondrites. Since they are chondrite they have the spherical chondrules. In face the chondrules in carbonaceous meteorites can be very pristine, large and often colorful. Often in carbonaceous meteorites there are irregularly shaped structures call Calcium Aluminum Inclusions or CAIs for short. Amino acids and larger amounts of volatile chemical compounds are found in carbonaceous chondrites. Some even have a distinct smell from these chemicals.
Excellent meteorite buying experience. Good inventory fairly priced and promptly shipped.

I purchased a moon dust necklace and a mars dust necklace for gifts. There was no problem with placing the order and they were received in a timely manner and in good condition. I would order from Meteorites-for-sale again.
