L3.9-6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L3.9-6 classification is given to a type of meteorite from the L group of ordinary chondrites, known for their lower iron content and moderate-sized chondrules. This meteorite is a breccia, meaning it consists of various fragments that range in metamorphic stage from type 3 (with abundant chondrules and minimal alteration) to type 6 (where minerals are more homogenized and chondrule outlines are less distinct), representing a spectrum of geological transformations.
