L(LL)3 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The L(LL)3 classification refers to a type of meteorite that is most likely from the L group of ordinary chondrites, known for their lower iron content and moderate-sized chondrules, but it could also belong to the LL group, which has similar characteristics but with slightly larger chondrules. This meteorite is categorized as petrologic type 3, indicating it’s in an early stage of metamorphism, characterized by a high presence of chondrules, minimal alteration by water, and minerals that are still in an early stage of chemical adjustment.
