Forsterite-Bearing Type B CAI with a Relict Eringaite-Bearing Ultra-Refractory CAI
Forsterite-bearing Type B (FoB) Ca,Al-rich inclusions (CAIs) are a rare type of coarse-grained igneous CAIs found almost exclusively in CV3 chondrites [1–5]. Here we describe the mineralogy, petrography, and oxygen-isotope compositions of a FoB CAI Al-2 from Allende containing a relict eringaite-bearing ultra-refractory (UR) inclusion. Eringaite is a Sc-rich garnet [Ca_3(Sc,Y,Ti)_2Si_3O_(12)] that has been recently identified in a cluster of UR inclusion fragments within an amoeboid olivine aggregate in Vigarano .
