C3/4-ung Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The C3/4-ung meteorite classification refers to a unique variety of carbonaceous chondrite, which is at an intermediate stage between petrologic types 3 and 4 and does not fit neatly into any established group. These meteorites are notable for their composition, which includes a mix of characteristics like abundant hydrated minerals and chondrules from type 3, and some degree of metamorphism typical of type 4, making them distinct and ungrouped within the broader category of carbonaceous chondrites.
