Introduction: The study of primitive carbonaceous chondrites is an important means of understanding the conditions of the early Solar System. We report new data on the Antarctic find RBT 04133, originally classified as a CR2 carbonaceous chondrite. However, we show that RBT 04133 is not a CR and has affinities to the CV and CO carbonaceous chondrite groups.
