H/L4-5 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The H/L4-5 meteorite classification describes a type of meteorite that could either belong to the H group, known for its high iron content, or the L group, with lower iron content, and is classified within the petrologic types 4 to 5. This suggests that the meteorite has undergone moderate metamorphism, leading to changes like the homogenization of mineral compositions and partial blurring of chondrule outlines, while still retaining some original structures.
