Enstatite Chondrite, high-iron [EH3; S4], unequilibrated
Fall, 13 September 1976; 2.6 kg, 2 stones (fragments)

A bolide traveling towards the NE resulted in a search which recovered two fragments. 744 volunteers had searched from September 15 until the end of the month. Enstatite Chondrites are quite rare, representing only ~1.5% of witnessed falls. The mass of the two recovered stones is quite modest (12 witnessed E chondrite falls are more massive). Qingzhen, however, has presented us with a very impressive mineralogical treasure trove. Among the Enstatite chondrites only the much larger Indarch (27 kg) has presented a comparable suite of mineralogical diversity. There appear to be three reasons for this.

The Enstatite Chondrite Class is defined by specific elemental and isotopic ratios. However, their mineralogical suites are perhaps their most striking characteristic. Enstatite Chondrites are marked by dominant Enstatite, abundant Fe-Ni metal, and a number of very reduced mineral phases which are rare or unknown in earth rocks or even in other meteorites. Qingzhen, in the EH chemical group, also contains niningerite and perryite. So, for starters, we expect diverse and unusual mineralogy in any EH chondrite. Furthermore, in spite of its modest mass, Qingzhen is actually the most massive fall among the petrologic type Type EH3 chondrites. Type EH3 chondrites are characterized by unequilibrated mineral assemblages. Qingzhen has some exotic inclusions (tiny oxidized inclusions, various nebular relics, presolar minerals [diamond, SiC]…) with mineral phases normally absent from the typical extremely reduced enstatite-rich mineral suites. Finally, microscopic examination of this unweathered meteorite — further required, perhaps, by Qingzhen’s strong pre-terrestrial shocks [S4 Shock level] — has yielded additional dividends which were not possible in earlier periods.
