CB Chondrite

Class also known as bencubbinites, are named after the Bencubbin meteorite found in 1930 in Australia. Only a handful of these strange meteorites are known, all composed of >50 vol. % Ni-Fe metal, together with highly reduced silicates, and chondrules similar to those found in the CR group.
