Are Ca,Al-rich Inclusions in EH3 and EL3 Chondrites Native to the Enstatite Chondrite-forming Regions?
We report mineralogy of 10 Ca,Al-rich inclusions in EH3 and EL3 chondrites. The CAis are spinel-rich and often contain osbornite (TiN) and/or heideite (FeTi2S4). Based on the presence of these Ti-bearing phases, we infer that the CAIs are native to the EC-forming region.
