The HED Meteorites: The HED meteorite group is so named for the three types of meteorites that comprise the group; Howardite, Eucrite and Diogenite. The Eucrite and Diogenite are distinct meteorites, while the Howardite is a mix of the Eucrite and Diogenite lithologies. The HEDs are differentiated achondritic meteorites thought to originate from Vesta. It is also possible they come from what was once a larger dwarf planet before a massive collision created  the many Vestoid asteroids andwhat is now the minor planet 4 Vesta.
