The “L/LL-melt rock” meteorite classification describes a type of ordinary chondrite, originating either from the low-iron L group or the low-iron, low-metal LL group, which has undergone significant melting. This classification indicates that these meteorites have experienced intense heat events, likely from impacts, leading to the melting and alteration of their original structure and mineral composition.
