Structural and mineralogical features of iron-containing phases in meteorites of different types
The chemical and mineral composition of iron-bearing phases in meteorites of different petrological types and chemical groups were studied by optical and scanning electron microscopy, as well as X-ray diffraction. Different structures of metallic phases such as kamacite and taenite grains, plessite structure, Neumann bands were observed. Inclusions of metallic copper were revealed on the border of metal and troilite phase in the stony meteorites.
