R3.5-4 Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The R3.5-4 meteorite classification refers to a type of R chondrite, a unique group of meteorites, that consists of a mixture (breccia) of both type 3 and type 4 materials. These meteorites stand out due to their uncommon chemical and isotopic composition, featuring a high degree of oxidation and a mixture of characteristics from both moderately and more extensively metamorphosed components, including the presence of abundant chondrules and more homogenized mineral compositions.
