L/LL3-5 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L/LL3-5 meteorite classification represents a group of meteorites that share features of both the L and LL groups of ordinary chondrites, known for their varying iron content and specific chondrule characteristics. These meteorites span metamorphic stages from type 3, with abundant chondrules and minimal alteration, to type 5, where they exhibit more extensive metamorphism leading to more uniform mineral compositions and the beginning of chondrule outlines blurring.
