The Sturja Asteroid Belt is the region of the System located roughly between the orbits of the planets Cyris Hope and Sturja V. It is occupied by numerous irregularly shaped small bodies .

__ About half the mass of the belt is contained in the six largest asteroids, protoplanets with mean diameters of more than 600 km. The remaining bodies range down to the size of a dust particle. The asteroid material is so thinly distributed that a random route through the belt is more likely to avoid a collision than to interact with a significantly massive body. Nonetheless, collisions between large asteroids do occur, and these can form an asteroid family whose members have similar orbital characteristics and compositions. Individual asteroids within the asteroid belt are categorized by their spectra, with most falling into three basic groups: carbonaceous (C-type), silicate (S-type), and metal-rich (M-type).__
