These compositions are used for relative comparison to the compositions of the lower crustal values found from the Chudlieh and McBride xenolith suites from Northern Queensland, Australia.

Ureilite Rock Metal   Y/RE 2.4         5   Low Iridium values indicative of bulk rock values. These values represent enrichments relative to C1 Chondrites.  Nickel values however, may be depleted in urelite metal so the actual values of the enrichments are more than likely smaller than reported here Janssens et al. 1987
Ureilite Vein Metal   Y/RE 5.4         5   High Iridium values indicative of vein material.These values represent enrichments relative to C1 Chondrites.  Nickel values however, may be depleted in urelite metal so the actual values of the enrichments are more than likely smaller than reported here Janssens et al. 1987
