L(LL)3.05 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L(LL)3.05 classification denotes a meteorite that is most likely from the L group of ordinary chondrites, recognized for their moderate iron content and specific chondrule size, but it could also be from the LL group, which is known for larger chondrules and even lower iron content. This meteorite is specifically identified as petrologic type 3, indicating an early stage of metamorphism, characterized by abundant chondrules, minimal alteration due to water, and minerals that are beginning to adjust chemically, blending the distinct attributes of the L and LL group meteorites.
