LL3.1-3.5 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The LL3.1-3.5 meteorite classification describes an ordinary chondrite from the LL group that consists of a mixture (breccia) of components, all of which are classified as petrologic type 3. This indicates that the meteorite is relatively unaltered, maintaining its original chondritic structure with abundant chondrules, minimal water-induced changes, and a variety of mineral compositions, reflecting a state that is closer to its original formation in the early solar system.
