L/LL5/6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L/LL5/6 meteorite classification represents a group of meteorites that share characteristics of both the L and LL groups of ordinary chondrites, known for their differences in iron content and specific chondrule features. These meteorites exhibit a range of metamorphic stages from type 5, indicating moderate metamorphism with more uniform mineral compositions, to type 6, showing significant metamorphism with highly homogenized minerals and less distinct chondrule outlines.
