Class Description

The “L-melt rock” classification is used for a type of meteorite from the L group of ordinary chondrites, which are characterized by a lower iron content and moderate-sized chondrules. This particular meteorite is unique in that it has undergone a process of secondary melting, meaning it has been heated and partially melted again after its initial formation, altering its original structure and composition.
