L/LL4-6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “L/LL4-6” meteorite classification refers to a type of ordinary chondrite that can belong to either the L or LL group, and encompasses a range of petrologic types from 4 to 6. These meteorites feature a notable mix of chondrules and have undergone metamorphic processes that range from moderate to advanced, leading to more uniform mineral compositions and the coarsening of certain minerals, but without reaching the point of melting.
