LL3-4 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The LL3-4 meteorite classification refers to a meteorite from the LL group, known for its low iron and metal content, that consists of a mixture (breccia) of materials from both type 3 and type 4. This means it contains elements that are minimally altered, retaining original features like abundant chondrules and unequilibrated minerals, as well as components that have undergone moderate metamorphism, leading to the homogenization of some minerals and the recrystallization of the matrix.
