L5 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “L5” classification identifies a meteorite as part of the low-iron L group of ordinary chondrites, characterized by moderate-sized chondrules and distinct oxygen isotope ratios. This type 5 meteorite has undergone significant heat metamorphism, resulting in homogenized minerals and less distinct chondrule outlines.
