Remarkable Diversity of Refractory Inclusions in the Miller Range 090019 CO3.1 Chondrite

Abstract: We have characterized the mineralogy, textures, bulk compositions, modal abundances and some mineral compositions in a suite of approximately 140 refractory inclusions from the MIL090019 carbonaceous chondrite. All of these 140 inclusions are found in a single thin section of this CO3.1 chondrite. These inclusions range from grossite- and hibonite-rich varieties, melilite-, spinel-, fassaite-diopside- and anorthite-rich types, and include a subset of aluminous AOAs (amoeboidal olivine aggrega…
