Variations of a theme

Not every primitive meteorite contains calcium-aluminum inclusions; some meteorites, like Leoville, have abundant CAIs, whereas others, like Clovis have none. Variations in the abundance of CAIs as well as other meteorite components suggest that the chemical elements may not have been evenly distributed in the early solar nebula.
