H3.8-an Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The H3.8-an meteorite classification describes a space rock from the high-iron H group of ordinary chondrites that primarily consists of type 3 properties, but also exhibits unique, unusual characteristics. Type 3 in this context indicates a meteorite rich in chondrules (small spherical structures) and relatively unaltered minerals, signifying minimal exposure to water and heat, but the ‘anomalous’ aspect points to specific traits that set it apart from typical members of its group.
