Found in 2017, Algeria

Main Mineral/ Name Meteorite: NWA 11474.
Mineral Form/ Type Meteorite: Lunar meteorite. Rock from the Moon
Weight: 1.276 g
Origin (Region/ City): Found in 2017
Origin (Country): Algeria

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 feldspathic breccia meteorite is from the famous yet recently discovered strewn field in Algeria.

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 specimen is a feldspathic regolith breccia and it is probably paired with the classified meteorite NWA 11474. It conserves its natural patina from the desert, with a characteristic orange color.

Weight: 1,276 grams.

Certificate of authenticity included. Membrane box included.

Last photo is courtesy of NASA.

Packages are usually sent the morning after the auction. Shipping is combined in all my listings - if you win multiple items, only one shipping cost is paid.
