H3/4 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The classification “H3/4” refers to an ordinary chondrite meteorite from the H group that is a mixture (breccia) of meteorite components from two different stages of development: type 3, which has abundant chondrules and minimal alteration, and type 4, which has undergone metamorphism that affected the composition of its grains. This classification helps scientists understand the history and evolution of meteorites and the early solar system.
