L/LL5-6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L/LL5-6 meteorite classification describes a type of space rock that belongs to either the L or LL group of ordinary chondrites and falls between petrologic types 5 and 6 in its characteristics. These meteorites have undergone a degree of metamorphism that blends features of both types, showing properties such as the homogenization of mineral compositions and some blurring of chondrule outlines, without reaching the point of melting.
