Carbonaceous chondrites contain amino acids and water in their composition, being perhaps the most amazing meteorites at a scientific level that we can have in our hands, since the latest studies indicate that they were the ones that sowed, with their amino acids and high carbon content, life on earth.
CAIs (Calcium-Aluminum) are the oldest substances in the Solar System.
They are very rare, they barely represent 4.8% of the meteorites found, so they rarely go on sale.
Chondrites are the oldest materials in the solar system, with an estimated age of formation of 4.55 billion years.
The characteristic of chondrites is the presence of chondrules, small balls of millimeters in size, largely composed of silicates.
The standard model for their initial formation is that they occur during the condensation of the solar nebula, from cosmic dust.
Chondrites are considered the first elements from which planets are formed.
