LL6-melt breccia Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The LL6-melt breccia classification describes a meteorite from the LL group of ordinary chondrites, which has reached a highly metamorphosed state (type 6), indicating extensive mineral homogenization and transformation. This meteorite is characterized as a breccia, meaning it is composed of fragments cemented together by a matrix of melted material, a trait that sets it apart from other meteorites in its group known for their low metal content and distinct chondrule and isotopic compositions.
