LL~3 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The LL~3 meteorite classification refers to a type of meteorite that is part of the LL group, known for having low iron and metal content, and is roughly categorized as petrologic type 3. This means that the meteorite likely contains a significant amount of chondrules (small, round mineral grains), has experienced minimal water-related changes, and maintains a variety of mineral compositions, indicating it is relatively unaltered since its formation in the early solar system.
