Identical Origin for Halide and Sulfate Efflorescences On Meteorite Finds and Sulfate Veins In OrgueilHalide and sulfate efflorescences are common on meteorite finds, especially those from cold deserts. Meanwhile, the late-stage sulfate veins in Orgueil are universally accepted as having originated by the action of late-stage high fO2 aqueous alteration on an asteroid. I suggest here that these phenomena have essentially the same origin.
