L/LL(?)3 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L/LL(?)3 meteorite classification refers to a type of meteorite that exhibits features of both the L and LL groups of ordinary chondrites, which are differentiated by their iron and metal content and chondrule size. However, there is some uncertainty in this classification (indicated by the question mark), suggesting that while the meteorite displays characteristics of petrologic type 3, with abundant chondrules and minimal alteration, its precise group affiliation within the L and LL categories is not definitively determined.
