Ordinary Chondrites

Chondrites of this clan are designated as "ordinary" just because they are the most common class of stony meteorites, representing more than 85% of all witnessed chondrite falls. As genuine pieces of primordial matter, ordinary chondrites are everything else but ordinary since they are more rare than gold or diamonds and older than any mineral known on Earth.

Based on the differing content of metal and differing mineralogical compositions the ordinary chondrites have been subdivided into three distinct groups that are designated as H, L, and LL chondrites.
