H3.7/3.8 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The H3.7/3.8 meteorite classification denotes a group of meteorites from the high-iron H group of ordinary chondrites, known for their specific siderophile element content and small chondrules. These meteorites display characteristics of both petrologic subtypes 3.7 and 3.8, indicating they are in a specific stage of metamorphism, where they exhibit some degree of mineral alteration and equilibration, but still retain many original features like abundant chondrules.
