See the Note under Meteorite.
meteorites usually composed relatively evenly of iron/nickel and stony material.
A type of stony-iron meteorite with silicate material and iron-nickel metal. These meteorites have been brecciated and metamorphosed, whereas pallasites, another type of stony-iron meteorite, are igneous rocks.
A class of meteorite; partly stone, partly nickel iron in a melded mixture
Mesosiderites are a class of stony-iron meteorites consisting of about equal parts of metallic nickeliron and silicate. They are breccias with an irregular texture, silicates and metal occur often in lumps or pebbles, as well as in fine-grained intergrowths. The silicate part contains olivine, pyroxenes and Ca-rich feldspar, and is similar in composition to eucrites and diogenites.
