An achondrite from the eucrite group; the meteorite is a monomict breccia. The highlighted words are defined as follows. Achondrite: A stony meteorite that lacks chondrules and originated on a differentiated parent body.Eucrite: Eucrites are the most abundant type of basaltic achondrite, linked by geochemical traits such as oxygen isotopic ratios and certain elemental ratios, of which Fe/Mn is the most widely cited. The main minerals in eucrites are Fe-rich pyroxene and Na-poor plagioclase. The eucrites are strongly linked with the diogenites and howardites; the three groups are collectively known as meteorites and may come from asteroid 4 Vesta.
