The composition and morphology of magnetite in CI carbonaceous meteorites appear incompatible with a nebular origin. Mineralization on the meteorite parent body is a more plausible mode of formation. The iodine-xenon age of this material therefore dates an episode of secondary mineralization on a planetesimal rather than the epoch of condensation in the primitive solar nebula. 
Carbonates and sulfates in CI chondrites: formation by aqueous activity on the parent body.
TLDR
Radiochronometric data indicate that this activity took place very early in Solar-System history, and alteration apparently took place without change in bulk meteorite composition. Expand

TLDR
Carbonaceous meteorites are fragments of ancient asteroids that have remained relatively unprocessed since the formation of the Solar System and provide a record of prebiotic chemical evolution and a window on the early Solar System. Expand

Mineralogical alteration of CM carbonaceous chondrites: A view
CM carbonaceous chondrites have been considerably affected by aqueous alteration, probably on the regolith of their parent body or bodies. The aqueous alteration resulted in the alteration ofExpand

TLDR
The great age, close isochronism, and primitive nature of the samples suggest that the event recorded was the condensation stage of the solar nebula, and provides a suitable zero point for the chronology of the early solar system. Expand
