L5-melt breccia Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L5-melt breccia classification refers to a specific type of meteorite from the L group, which are ordinary chondrites known for their relatively low metal content and distinct mineral and isotope compositions. This particular meteorite has undergone significant metamorphic changes (classified as type 5), leading to the transformation and homogenization of its primary minerals, and it uniquely features a breccia structure where the fragments are bound together by a matrix of melted material.
