Asteroidal: Diogenite

The classification system for these changed recently (Dunites are now Diogenite with a sub-description of “dunitic”). It is believed that this material has an origin from very deep in Vesta. However, researchers have reported that the spacecraft that orbited Vesta a year or so ago did not see any olivine so there is still some slight uncertainty as to the origin of HED generally and dunites, specifically.
