Diogenite meteorite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Diogenites are an abundant type of achondrite, linked by geochemical traits such as oxygen isotopic ratios and certain elemental ratios, of which Fe/Mn is the most widely cited. The dominant mineral in diogenites is orthopyroxene. The diogenites are strongly linked with two other achondrite groups: eucrites and howardites; the three groups are collectively known as HED meteorites and may come from asteroid 4 Vesta.

Essential minerals - these are minerals that are required within the classification of this rock:
Pyroxene > OrthopyroxeneA petrological term for Orthopyroxene Subgroup.
Non-essential minerals - these minerals are common, sometimes major components, but are not always present:
Feldspar > PlagioclaseA petrological term for Albite-Anorthite Series.
OlivineEquivalent to Fayalite-Forsterite Series; usually a more or less Fe-bearing forsterite.
