Diogenites

 

The achondrites of this group are named for a Greek philosopher of the fifth century B.C., Diogenes of Apollonia. He was the first to suggest that meteorites actually have their origin in outer space, a fundamental realization that was subsequently forgotten for the next two thousand years. T

Mineralogically, the diogenites are composed primarily of magnesium-rich orthopyroxene, with only minor amounts of olivine and plagioclase. The pyroxenes are usually coarse-grained, suggesting a cumulate origin for the diogenites in magma chambers within the deeper regions of Vesta's crust.
