CM2 - Carbonaceous Chondrite

Perhaps one of the most important meteorite falls in the last 50 years, arguably the most scientifically significant, because we now have better analytic tools at our disposal to eke out the complex organic molecules encapsulated in this remarkable extraterrestrial emissary. These are the meteorites that may have brought the ingredients for life to our planet. An exceptional opportunity for science and institutional curation.

This is the quintessential meteorite. Burnt black from the heat of compressing our atmosphere into a plasma, unbroken these meteorites are hard to distinguish from randomly sized and shaped charcoal briquettes.
