Extract from the introduction: Enstatite chondrites have remarkable properties: they were formed in a reducing environment, they are putatively similar to precursor material of Earth, Venus, or Mercury, have a terrestrial oxygen isotopic composition and an uncommon noble gas signature [1-5]. Trapped noble gases in Echondrites are intermediate between solar and chondritic composition and consist of two components: Subsolar, enriched in Ar and Kr relative to Xe and Q-gas, possibly residing in enstatite, micro-vesicles or graphite within enstatite [6,7] and Q-gases [5,8].
