Diogenite-pm Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “Diogenite-pm” classification identifies a specific type of achondrite meteorite within the diogenite group, characterized as a polymict breccia, meaning it is composed of various types of rocks fused together. These meteorites, predominantly made up of orthopyroxene, share geochemical features like oxygen isotopic ratios with other diogenites and are part of the HED group, which includes eucrites and howardites, and may originate from asteroid 4 Vesta.
