Hello Matteo & list,

the Etter chondrite has (from New Catalogue) 20.63% total iron and
olivine Fa 25. If you go on Rock from Space (pag. 187), you'll see that
the L-chondrites have a percent of total iron between 20 and 25, and
olivine with fayalite content of 23 to 26 %.
So I think that Etter is really L5.

Best wishes
