The mineralogical, textural and compositional characteristics of the eucrite meteorites suggest that they are the products of igneous processes. Howardites are polymict breccias containing a variety of fragments, the bulk of which are thought to have crystallised from eucrite and eucrite-related melts. Diogenites are orthopyroxene-rich stones which may represent cumulates from eucrite-related melts. I relate here experimentally determined phase equilibria to the igneous processes which produced the eucrites and their associates.
