"Some CK meteorites display free iron."

Most CK meteorites have no FeNi metal but magnetite instead.
This shows that CK chondrites are highly oxidized. Of course,
magnetite is strongly magnetic! DaG 275 (CK4/5), for example,
is one of those CKs that Peter refers to, as it has trace amounts
of FeNi metal.

Best wishes,
