Classification: Ureilite [prototype].

With both flash and booms, on 4 September, 1886, three pieces of the Novo-Urei meteorite landed near the river Alatry in what is now the Mordova Republic of Russia. A single stone was secured and ~1.9 kg is still accounted for. Novo-Urei is the prototype for the enigmatic Ureilites and is one of only six witnessed ureilite falls. Indeed, until the recent 2008 Almahata Sitta fall, Novo-Urei was the most massive known Ureilite fall. (A number of larger Ureilite finds [unseen falls] have been recovered from various deserts).

Ureilites are most notably characterized by their odd mix of silicates (mostly olivine & pyroxenes) and various forms of elemental carbon (graphite, two types of diamond, etc.). Meteoritic iron (Kamacite), troilite, and various opaques are also invariably present. Research continues to concentrate on disentangling the seemingly contrary implications of cumulate igneous mineralogy, severe shock indicators, and oxygen isotope signatures. In addition to the citations for individual minerals, the reviews by Vdovykin (1970) and Goodrich (1992) provide good introductions to the perennial issues.
