LL3.7-6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The LL3.7-6 classification refers to a type of meteorite from the LL group of ordinary chondrites, recognized for their low iron and metal content and relatively large chondrules. This meteorite is a breccia, meaning it consists of fragments that span a range of metamorphic stages from type 3, characterized by abundant chondrules and minimal alteration, to type 6, where minerals are highly homogenized and chondrule outlines become less distinct, representing a spectrum of geological changes within the LL group.
