L3.8-6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L3.8-6 classification describes a meteorite from the L group of ordinary chondrites, known for their lower iron content and moderate-sized chondrules. This particular meteorite is a breccia, meaning it’s composed of fragments from a range of petrologic types, specifically types 3 to 6, reflecting a spectrum of metamorphic changes from the presence of abundant chondrules and minimal alteration (type 3) to a more homogenized mineral composition and blurred chondrule outlines (type 6).
