It is thought that these meteorites formed when the H chondrite parent body encountered an impact that melted the iron and sulfides. This has led to the proposal of terms such as sulfide-iron meteorites and impact melt irons. SAW 005 is the only H-metal meteorite outside of Antarctica and one of only five in the world.
