Description


Supremely desirable NWA 10495 lunar meteorite (feldspathic breccia), a whole stone recently found in Northwest Africa. The exceptionally fine complete stone weighs 34.5 grams, measures approximately 38 mm x 32 mm x 28 mm, and has a conical shape which appears to show orientation. Includes a special color 11 x 8.5 cardstock photo of the lunar surface signed in silver ink by the commander of Apollo 15, "Dave Scott, Apollo 15 CDR, Moon Rock Recoverer." In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites Inc. and the TV show Meteorite Men. On the Apollo 15 mission, Dave Scott and Jim Irwin conducted three lunar EVAs during which they collected approximately 169 pounds of moon rocks and lunar soil samples, including the famous 'Genesis Rock,' an anorthosite formed in the early stages of the solar system. An exceptional set that pairs the autograph of one of twelve "Moon Rock Recoverers" with the rare opportunity to own an actual piece of the moon in the form of a lunar meteorite.
