Classification: Lunar Basaltic Breccia
Description: This is a 5.13 gram complete slice of a rare basaltic lunar meteorite that was ejected from the Moon's surface when another meteorite struck that area of the Moon with enough force to send pieces into an Earth crossing trajectory.
This specimen is unlike many of the lunar feldspathic breccia that are more common among the lunar meteorites types, and instead shows a more rapidly quenched basaltic texture. It is a stunning lunar meteorite with larger slices displaying pronounced long well-defined glassy shock veins. These lunar meteorites offer a unique and beautiful interior, unlike any other meteorite.
What you get: 5.13 gram partial slice/specimen of the lunar basalt meteorite as shown, shipping/storage membrane box, and a signed certificate of authenticity.
