Enstatite chondrite, class EH4, from an observed fall; weight 27 kg, Fall 8:10pm April 7, 1891.

In 1891 the Indarch meteorite, a single stone, fell and buried itself in the soil to a depth of 18 cm. Besides the pyroxene (enstatite) in chondrules and clasts, the meteorite contains nodular masses of Fe-Ni metal and troilite. However, as reported by Merrill (1915), it also contains oldhamite — one of the several unusual minerals characteristic of the highly reduced Enstatite Chondrites and Achondrites. The Enstatite meteorites contain a number of sulfides, nitrides and other phases rarely if ever found on earth. Indarch itself is classified as an EH Enstatite Chondrites — a group further characterized by small chondrules, abundant Fe-Ni metal, and the presence of niningerite (MnS) and perryite (Fe-Ni silicide).

Indarch is the second largest EH fall (Abee is larger) and has provided researchers a more diverse suite of minerals than most Enstatite Chondrites. It has been the host for the discovery for four of the minerals listed here. In addition, it contains a number of minute presolar minerals and phases produced by ancient red giants and/or supernovae. These presolar phases include nanodiamonds, nierite, spinel and other phases too small for definitive mineralogical identification (e.g. silicon carbide).
