H3.2-3.7 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The H3.2-3.7 meteorite classification refers to an ordinary chondrite from the high-iron H group composed entirely of type 3 components, each representing different stages of metamorphic progression within the type 3 range. These components, characterized by their significant chondrule presence and minimal alteration, collectively span from the early stages of metamorphism (3.2) to the more advanced phases approaching type 4 characteristics (3.7), all while retaining the distinctive features of the H group, such as small chondrules and high siderophile elements.
