C3-ung Carbonaceous Chondrite
Unequilibrated with many oxidized inclusions

The Ningqiang meteorite fell in a field in Ningqiang County, Shaanxi Province, China on 25 June 1983. Four pieces of a single stone with a mass of 4.6 kg were recovered. The meterorite’s fall was announced in Meteorite Bulletin 65 (1987). The meterorite’s classification as a carbonaceous chondrite is straightforward as over 90% of the meteorite is a roughly half-half mixture of matrix and chondrules. However, its specific classification has been quite problematic as it also contains a variety of small inclusions and aggregates with disparate specific affinites with CV, CK, and CM Carbonaceous Chondrites. With access to considerably more material than previous investigators, Wang and Hsu (2009) established that Ningqiang does not belong to any of the eight chemically defined groups of Carbonaceous Chondrites. They also investigated several hundred refractory inclusions and ‘amoeboid olivine aggregates’. These varied and incompletely equilibrated inclusions and aggregates help to explain much of this meteorite's mineralogical ‘plenitude’.
