Aubrites

The aubrites are named for Aubres, a small meteorite that fell near Nyons, France, in 1836. Consisting primarily of the orthopyroxene enstatite, they are also called enstatite achondrites. Aubrites represent evolved rocks of igneous origin and are not to be confused with primitive enstatite-rich achondrites such as Zaklodzie or Itqiy. Due to their typical light-colored fusion crusts, their white interiors, and their fragile compositions, most aubrites in our collections are witnessed falls or finds from the blue-ice fields of Antarctica. Excluding all probable pairings, only 16 distinct members are known. Strangely, very few aubrites has been recovered from the hot deserts. Aubrites are very rare achondrites.
