The Allende meteorite, which is classified as a carbonaceous chondrite, consists of large, irregularly shaped white inclusions and rounded chondrules in a dark matrix.

Allende contains carbonaceous compounds as well as calcium-rich inclusions (large white circle near center).

A meteorite may range in size from less than a gram to more than 60 tons. Meteorites are characterized as either meteorite falls or meteorite finds. A meteorite fall is a meteorite that was observed falling from the sky. The Chelyabinsk meteorite, which fell in Russia in , and the Allende meteorite, which fell in Mexico in , are typical meteorite falls. A meteorite find is not the same as a meteorite fall.
