L6/7 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L6/7 meteorite classification refers to a group of meteorites that belong to the L category, known for their lower iron content. These meteorites are in an advanced stage of metamorphism, straddling the boundary between type 6 and type 7, which means they have undergone extensive geological changes that significantly alter their mineral composition and structure, leading to highly homogenized minerals and a loss of original features like chondrules.
