LL4/6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The LL4/6 meteorite classification describes a meteorite from the LL group, which is known for its low iron and metal content and relatively large chondrules, typical of ordinary chondrites. This classification indicates the meteorite is a composite or breccia, combining elements from both petrologic type 4, where minerals are more homogenized and chondrules start to recrystallize, and type 6, where minerals are fully homogenized, chondrules are blurred, and no melting has occurred.
