Class Description

The OC3 meteorite classification describes a type of ordinary chondrite, a common class of meteorite, that has not yet been classified into a specific group but falls into petrologic type 3. This type 3 classification indicates that the meteorite is rich in chondrules, has undergone minimal alteration by water, and its minerals show a wide range of compositions, reflecting a low level of metamorphism.
