Only 5 CI specimens are known: Alais - Ivuna - Orgueil - Revelstoke -
O.R. NORTON, Rocks from Space, 2nd ed., page 193 => Recognized by a lack
of chondrules and abundance of hydrous minerals, they contain the
highest percentage of water - 20 percent - of any carbonaceous
meteorite. When heated in a closed container, the water is easily driven
off and condenses on the side of the enclosing vessel.
