Silicated Iron Meteorite Collection


Silicated iron meteorites are sort of a group between groups. While considered irons, they nevertheless contain significant amounts of silicates and other inclusions. Occasionally, as in the case of the Caddo County specimen, two or three categories of meteorite are represented in the same piece at once. Because of their silicate content, silicated irons tend to be lighter than pure irons.
