A study of chondrules in the Boxian meteorite from Anhui Province, China

  • Wang Kuiren 


The types of chondrules in the Boxian meteorite have been determined. Electron microprobe analysis of various textural types of chondrules in the meteorite has revealed the composition of glassy chondrules and of their glassy matrix. Also presented in this paper are the related explanations. In addition, the genesis, textural diversity and evolution of the chondrules as well as the olivine girdles observed in the chondrules are discussed.
