The R chondrite is the most oxidized of all the chondrites, and is the rarest of the chondrite classes with the exception for the K chondrite.

This meteorite displays three distinct lithology: black, light grey, and brown. Depending on the specimen, it may have one, two or all three visible in a single stone.
