A meteoroid which reaches the ground is called a meteorite. A small number of meteorites have been found which scientists believe originated on the Moon or Mars. The composition of meteorites gives us valuable information about the universe. Meteorites typically fall into one of five categories.
These meteorites are made of a crystalline iron-nickel alloy that resembles the outer core of the earth. Similar in structure to some asteroids (type M), 5.7% of meteorites are irons.
These meteorites are mixtures of iron-nickel alloy and non-metallic mineral matter. Scientists believe they are like the material which would be found where the Earth's core meets the mantle. 1.5% of meteorite falls are stony irons.
There are three subclasses of stony meteorites:
Chondrites: These meteorites are the most numerous, comprising 85.7% of all meteorites found. They are characterized by chondrules: small (average diameter of 1 millimeter) spheres of formerly melted minerals that have melded with other minerals to form a solid rock. Chondrites are believed to be among the oldest rocks in the solar system and are similar in composition to the mantles and crusts of earth and the other terrestrial planets.
Carbonaceous Chondrites: These meteorites are very rare and contain elemental carbon, the basic building block for life on earth.
Achondrites: Stony meteorites without chondrules, representing about 7.1% of meteorites. Scientists believe that some of these meteorites originate on the surface of the Moon or Mars.
The classification of meteorites is complex but at a high level they can be divided into Stony meteorites and Stony-iron meteorites.
Meteorites are fragments of Asteroids and or comets.
Meteorites are divided into three main groups:
1. Iron meteorites - these are almost entirely composed of iron-nickel metal, and usually have small amounts of sulphide and carbide minerals.
2. Stony-iron meteorites - these are made up of equal amounts of iron-nickel metal and silicate minerals.
3. Stone meteorites - these consist mainly of silicate minerals. Most of the meteorites that fall onto the earth of this type.

Three Types of Meteorites:

There are a lot more than three types of charts. The question can only be answered if you specify which three types of charts you are interested in.
The three different types of solar cookers are box, panel,and parabolic.
asteroids are big in the shape
Several commonly found objects in solar systems besides Planets (including planet types) and asteroids are comets, stars, black holes, and moons (satellites).
There are multiple types of asteroids based on their chemical composition and reflectiveness. The three most common are C-type, S-type, and M-Type. There are also more than a dozen very rare types.
The three are names of asteroids (planetoids).
C-type - Carbon-richS-type - StonyM-type - Metallic.

There are three main clusterings of asteroids in our solar system: the Asteroid Belt, the first one identified, which is composed mostly of rocky asteroids, the Kuiper Belt, which contains several dwarf planets, and many icy asteroids, and the Oort Cloud, a theoretical halo of sorts surrounding our solar system, comprised mainly of comets and icy asteroids.
Comets are Comets and Asteroids are Asteroids
Actually generally speaking Asteroids are heavily composed of high density rock. Dust and Ice are generally the properties of a Comet mostly because they aren't formed near the sun.
