Howardite-an Meteorite Classification

Class Description

The Howardite-an classification refers to a unique type of meteorite from the howardite group, known for their blend of materials from eucrites and diogenites, suggesting a connection to asteroid 4 Vesta. These meteorites are notable for lacking the round particles called chondrules and for having atypical characteristics that set them apart from the typical howardite composition, primarily made up of orthopyroxene and plagioclase minerals.
