Iron Meteorites

Aletai is an anomalous IIIE. It has the highest Au concentration (1.810-1.894 µg/g) in the group, and its Ir concentration (0.228-0.235 µg/g) is much higher than that inferred through the trend of the other group members.

Chemical and petrographic analyses of multiple iron meteorite masses found in the northern part of Xinjiang, indicate pairing of these masses with the
Aramanty (IIIE) iron. All of these iron meteorites carry now the official name “Aletai”, from the name of the prefecture. The other names are now abolished and become synonyms for Aletai.
