L3-7 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L3-7 classification describes a meteorite from the L group (low-iron ordinary chondrites) that is a complex mixture, or breccia, containing elements that range from lightly altered to highly metamorphosed, spanning from type 3 to type 7. This spectrum includes meteorites with abundant original features like chondrules and those that have undergone extreme alteration, almost to the point of melting, resulting in a uniform mineral composition and the disappearance of original structures.
