9826 Ehrenfreund (2114 T-3) is a main-belt asteroid. It is theorized to contain a high density of iron as well as a small percentage of other metals including Beryllium and trace amounts of Copper and Nickel. NASA currently has plans underway to determine its true composition by the means of a small probe set to launch sometime in 2016.
