Several meteorite types, distinct from the large chondrite groups (H, L, LL, E and carbonaceous), are known to also have chondritic compositions. These meteorites preserve information on conditions at additional formation locations in the early solar nebula. Silicate inclusions from group IAB iron meteorites are one such type. Evidence for their chondritic nature is given and their formation discussed.
