Other achondrite meteorites

There are several rare types of achondrites. Angrites and Aubrites come from large parent bodies where their mineralogical and chemical composition were changed by melting and crystallization processes. Brachinites, Acapulcoites, Lodranites, Ureilites and Winonaites are called primitive achondrites because their chemical composition is primitive in the sense that it is similar to the composition of chondrites, but their texture is igneous, indicative of melting processes.
