H3.4-5 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The H3.4-5 meteorite classification describes a particular variety of ordinary chondrite from the high-iron H group, which is a mixture (breccia) of elements from petrologic types 3 to 5. This indicates that the meteorite includes a range of components, from those with numerous individual chondrules and minimal alteration (type 3), progressing to those that have undergone substantial metamorphic transformations, leading to a more homogenized mineral composition and less discernible chondrules (type 5).
