The Mighei (CM2) meteorite was observed to fall on 18 Jun 1889. After both sounds and light, a single stone of mass ~ 8 kg was recovered. Mighei is the prototype for the CM (Mighei-like) Carbonaceous Chondrites. There are 15 known CM falls and over 400 recorded finds. Most CM meteorites are petrologic type CM2. While Mighei has been available for a number of research studies, the more massive and thus more available CM2 Murchison meteorite (~100 kg) has often drawn more attention.

Like all carbonaceous chondrite, Mighei and other CM carbonaceous chondrites have nearly solar Mg/Si ratios and similar oxygen isotope ratios. In addition, Mighei and other members of the CM chemical group are distinguished by small chondrules and inclusions, abundant fine-grained matrix (~70 vol%), and abundant hydrated minerals. The CM2 type are further characterized by their Ni-bearing sulfides.
