LL3.8-6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The classification “LL3.8-6” refers to an ordinary chondrite from the LL group that is a breccia composed of components ranging from petrologic type 3 to type 6. Ordinary chondrites are a major class of meteorites characterized by their high chondrule content and specific oxygen isotope composition. In this case, the meteorite is a complex mixture of chondrites with varying degrees of metamorphism, mineral composition, and alteration, representing a range of petrologic types from less metamorphosed (type 3) to more metamorphosed (type 6), with distinct mineral changes and chondrule characteristics in each component.
