L/LL3.2 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L/LL3.2 meteorite classification represents a group of meteorites that exhibit features of both the L and LL groups of ordinary chondrites, which are differentiated by their iron content and specific chondrule characteristics. These meteorites are specifically identified as petrologic subtype 3.2, indicating they are in an early stage of metamorphism, characterized by abundant chondrules, minimal alteration, and minerals that are beginning to adjust chemically, blending the distinct attributes of the L and LL group meteorites.
