Strangely, there isn't a lot of information on Ceres on the internet. I want to know the specific percentages of its composition.
Thanks in advance!

The details are not known for certain, however it is generally thought to have a rocky core, formed of silicates (aluminium and magnesium silicate for example) and a large mantle of water ice, perhaps 50% by volume, 25% by mass. The surface crust is formed of various carbonaceous and iron minerals: siderite, dolomite, cronstedtite. There may be a small iron core.
