I can't wait for the research to get back on this one Greg!!
It is an awesome stone.

This one is on its way to Germany for research and study (may be the largest CAI ever!) but is still nice to look at. I am excited for the results of this one... http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c165/jedisdiamond/DSCF5377.jpg http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c165/jedisdiamond/DSCF5367.jpg I have CM, CO, CR and CV that all have CAIs visible.

Simple answer: any kind of chondrite. However, most common in carbonaceous chondrites, particularly CV's. They contain more refractory elements than the "ordinary" condrules they are found with. They were formed at higher temperatures and many show signs of repeated meltings. They are older than the next most early solar system materials, the chondrules, by 2,000,000 years or so. Two different dating methods give ages of 4567 my and 4571 my.for CAI's. Sterling K.
