H3.7-5 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The H3.7-5 meteorite classification refers to a specific type of ordinary chondrite from the high-iron H group, which is a composite (breccia) of materials that exhibit features of petrologic types 3 to 5. This suggests that the meteorite contains a variety of elements, from those with numerous distinct chondrules and minimal chemical changes (type 3), to those that have experienced significant metamorphic changes, leading to more uniform mineral composition and less distinct chondrules (type 5).
