L/LL3-6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L/LL3-6 meteorite classification describes a type of meteorite that combines characteristics of both the L and LL groups of ordinary chondrites, which are differentiated by their iron and metal content and size of chondrules. These meteorites exhibit a range of metamorphic stages, from type 3, indicating minimal metamorphism with abundant chondrules, to type 6, showing significant metamorphism with more uniform mineral composition and less distinct chondrules.
