Carbonaceous chondrite (CV3.3,ox; S3; W0).
After detonations and a fireball, a single 3 kg stone fell on 15 April 1857. Kaba is a member of the oxidized subgroup of Vigarano-like Carbonaceous Chondrites. Carbonaceous Chondrites are classified primarily on the basis of their bulk chemistry (especially, their Mg/Si ratios) and their oxygen isotope ratios. In spite of its moderate mass and the long period since recovery, Kaba has been well-curated and has been utilized in recent research focusing especially on Calcium-and-Aluminium rich inclusions (CAIs. These inclusion are quite similar to those found in the more renown and massive Allende (1969 fall), another member of the CV3 oxidized subgroup. There are, however, some interesting differences among this subgroup which also includes Bali, Grosnaja, and Mokoia.
