H3.9/4 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The classification “H3.9/4” describes an ordinary chondrite meteorite from the H group, which is a type of space rock known for its high iron content and small, round grains called chondrules. In this case, it’s a mixture (breccia) of meteorite components that range from being minimally altered (type 3) to having undergone some metamorphism (type 5), providing insights into different stages of the meteorite’s history and the early solar system.
