H-melt breccia Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The H-melt breccia classification refers to a type of meteorite that originates from the high-iron H group of ordinary chondrites and is characterized by a structure where fragments (breccia) are embedded in a matrix formed from melted material. This group of meteorites is known for its composition that includes small chondrules, a higher iron content, and oxygen isotope ratios that align more closely with those found on Earth, compared to other ordinary chondrites.
