LL5/6 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The LL5/6 meteorite classification denotes a group of meteorites from the LL group of ordinary chondrites, known for their low iron and low metal content and relatively large chondrules. These meteorites exhibit characteristics of both petrologic type 5 and type 6, indicating they have undergone significant metamorphism, resulting in a blend of features like homogenized mineral compositions and the coarsening of secondary phases such as feldspar, bridging the characteristics of these two types.
