L/LL~4 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L/LL~4 meteorite classification describes a group of meteorites that exhibit characteristics of both the L and LL groups of ordinary chondrites, which are differentiated by their iron content and specific chondrule properties. These meteorites are approximately identified as petrologic type 4, indicating they have undergone considerable metamorphism, leading to more homogenized mineral compositions and the beginning of matrix recrystallization, but with some ambiguity in their exact classification.
