In the chemical classification system, there are several "correlation negativ"s and "correlation positv"s. Usually negative and positive end in e. Are negativ and positiv used in the chemical classification of meteorites, or is this just a mispelling?--Wikimedes (talk) 00:00, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
Probably a spelling mistake. I was anyway thinking of removing those overly detailed listings of trace elements. The average reader of this article is not going to care about Germanium concentrations. I was thinking of redrawing a picture like this one (http://www.psrd.hawaii.edu/WebImg/ironMetGroups.gif) instead of the text. --Tobias1984 (talk) 09:54, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
Within the relevant paragraph section, we need an explanation or definition of the difference between "Magmatic" (igneous?) and "non-Magmatic" iron meteorites. Wikipedia in general seems to neglect this topic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:00, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
We have Nonmagmatic meteorite. The subject of meteorite classification and interpretation is difficult and needs a lot more work. In general I would say that magmatic is "typical igneous" while non-magmatic really means formed by a process that does not quite look typical igneous. The literature at the bottom of Nonmagmatic meteorite should be helpful. --Tobias1984 (talk) 14:13, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
