LL-melt rock Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “LL-melt rock” classification is used for a type of meteorite from the LL group of ordinary chondrites, which are characterized by their low iron and metal content and relatively large chondrules. This particular meteorite is unique in that it has undergone a process known as secondary melting, meaning it has been significantly heated and partially melted again after its initial formation, altering its original structure and composition.
