L/LL Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L/LL meteorite classification describes a type of ordinary chondrite that displays characteristics of both the L (low-iron) and LL (low-iron, low-metal) groups, making it difficult to categorize definitively into either group. These meteorites contain moderate to low amounts of iron and metal, and their specific composition places them at an intermediate position between the L and LL groups, reflecting a blend of traits from both.
