H3.2-6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The H3.2-6 classification refers to a type of ordinary chondrite from the high-iron H group, which is a composite or breccia containing components that vary from petrologic type 3 to type 6. This variety indicates a range of conditions within the meteorite, from areas with abundant, distinct chondrules and minimal alteration (type 3), to regions where intense metamorphism has homogenized mineral compositions and blurred chondrule outlines (type 6), illustrating a complex history of thermal processing.
