Class Description

The LL(L)3 classification indicates a type of meteorite that is most likely from the LL group of ordinary chondrites, known for their low iron and metal content and larger chondrules, but it could also be from the L group, which has similar but slightly different characteristics. This meteorite is categorized as petrologic type 3, signifying an early stage of metamorphism, characterized by abundant chondrules, minimal alteration due to water, and minerals that are in an early stage of chemical adjustment, blending the distinct attributes of the LL and L group meteorites.
