Iron Composition[edit]

The article says in one paragraph that the meteorite contains little or no Ni-Fe metal. The next paragraph says it's 24% iron by weight. I'm no chemistry expert, but i'm guessing one of those numbers is wrong. That or it's non metalic iron (if that exists?)Eganjt (talk) 17:54, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

It is nonmetallic iron, mostly present as FeO in the mineral olivine as well as FeS (troilite). --JeffG (talk) 11:45, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
