Diogenite Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “Diogenite” classification applies to a type of achondrite meteorite, part of the diogenite group, which is characterized by a lack of chondrules and a composition primarily composed of orthopyroxene. These meteorites, known for specific geochemical signatures like oxygen isotopic ratios, are closely associated with eucrites and howardites, forming the HED group that is potentially linked to asteroid 4 Vesta.
