Near-Earth and near-Mars asteroids: Prognosis of pyroxene typesThe diagnostic signs of ferrous absorption band at 505nm and color index (u-x) found at main-belt asteroids and 6-parametric classification of light stone meteorites have been the basis of the work. The colorimetric data of light near-Earth and near-Mars asteroids from TRIAD and ECAS were analyzed. Composition fields of pyroxenes were obtained for these asteroids by the value of (u-x) and 505-nm ferrous absorption band position within the pyroxenes quadrilateral. Pyroxenes of the S-asteroids from Apollo-Amor which have spectral parameters similar to achondrites may be presented by the diopside series.
