Class Description

The classification “LL3-5” refers to a type of meteorite from the LL group, which is a composite or breccia made up of different pieces that vary in their degree of alteration and heating, classified as types 3 to 5. These meteorites are known for their low iron and metal content, relatively large spherical components called chondrules, and a chemical composition that sets them apart from other ordinary chondrites, showing a range from less altered to more thermally metamorphosed states.
