H/L3.7 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The H/L3.7 meteorite classification refers to a specific type of ordinary chondrite that could either belong to the high-iron (H) or low-iron (L) group, characterized as petrologic type 3.7. These meteorites are known for their mix of small, round particles called chondrules, with a level of thermal metamorphism that has started to alter their original structure and composition, but not to the extent of higher petrologic types, maintaining some of their original characteristics.
