L(LL)~4 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The classification L(LL)~4 refers to a type of space rock that’s part of a common class of meteorites, likely from the L group but possibly from the LL group, and is roughly classified as type 4. This means it’s undergone a moderate level of heat alteration, resulting in a more uniform mineral composition and the transformation of its original, small, round particles (chondrules) and fine-grained material.
