Description

Lunar meteorites are the result of another meteorite hitting the Moon and releasing its rock into space, where they were floating for probably millions of years until their trajectory led them to Earth. This lunar meteorite is from Libya and was discovered in 2022.

It is known that these meteorites are from the Moon because lunar rocks were picked up and brought to Earth in the Apollo missions, testing their composition and then scientifically proving that they cannot come from any other part of the Solar System but from the Moon.

This piece is a lunar ferroan anorthosite, cataclastic. The very high anorthite content (98-99%) and cataclastic texture is similar to Apollo 16 cataclastic FANs.

Certificate of authenticity included. IMCA 5591.
