Enstatite Chondrite, high-iron [EH5 S4]
Fall, 10 July 1914, ~14 kg

After a bolide and loud rolling detonations, a single stone fell near the village of Saint-Sauveur. Saint-Sauveur is an EH5 S4 Enstatite Chondrite. Like all Enstatite Chondrites, its predominant silicate mineral is Enstatite, an iron-poor pyroxene. Abundant metal and an assortment of extremely reduced minerals account for the bulk of the remaining material. The EH chemical group are further characterized by the presence of niningerite and perryite. Petrologic type 5 EH chondrites have homogeneous pyroxenes and blurred chondrule outlines due to metamorphism. In addition, Saint-Sauveur has experienced moderately strong pre-terrestrial shock (shock level 4) .
