Eucrite-cm Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The “Eucrite-cm” classification refers to a specific type of achondrite in the eucrite group, identified as a cumulate eucrite, which implies a particular textural formation process. These meteorites, part of the most abundant category of basaltic achondrites, are characterized by their Fe-rich pyroxene and Na-poor plagioclase minerals, sharing key geochemical characteristics with diogenites and howardites in the HED group, potentially linked to asteroid 4 Vesta.
