Description


Two small meteorite fragments, one weighing 0.403 grams and the other 0.257 grams, from the very rare, recently classified Northwest Africa 6355 Lunar Melt-Matrix Mingled Breccia meteorite. Presented in a 4 x 4 display. In fine condition. The meteorite material is a mixture of rock fragments and glass from the lunar highlands with chemical composition comparable to soils brought back on Apollo 16; this is one of the only instances where lunar meteorites have been correlated with material from a specific moon mission landing site.
