|Abstract: ||A reference material for comparative analytical studies and standardization was prepared from fresh, clean specimen material from the Allende, Mexico, Type CV3 carbonaceous chondrite fall of 8 February 1969. Fragments weighing 4 kg were powdered, homogenized, and split into 1 g and 5 g subsamples. Analytical results for a total of 74 elements were provided by 24 analysts or groups of analysts. A variety of techniques were used, and many elements were determined by more than one technique. Reports from contributors of data outline their procedures and give their results in detail. Sample homogeneity has been evaluated in terms of this body of data, and " recommended values" are suggested for 43 elements.|
