Diogenite-an Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The Diogenite-an classification refers to a specific type of achondrite meteorite from the diogenite group, typically known for being composed predominantly of orthopyroxene and having unique geochemical traits like specific oxygen isotopic ratios. This particular meteorite stands out for its anomalous properties, making it distinct within the diogenite group, which is part of the larger HED (howardite, eucrite, and diogenite) classification and possibly linked to asteroid 4 Vesta.
