Météorite lunaire Béchar - 22.48 g - (1)

This meteorite was formed when another meteorite hit the lunar surface and blasted some of the rock back into space. Although the Moon is the closest of all celestial bodies to us, lunar meteorites make up only 0.08% of all meteorites found. Because of its rarity, beauty and the vital role the Moon has played and will soon play again in the discovery of our Solar System, this type of meteorite should not be missing from any space enthusiast's collection. This particular piece, found in 2022 in the Bechar locality in western Algeria, stands out for its narrow profile that makes it offer a large cross-sectional area with a relatively small mass. The fascinating structure of the lunar rock can thus be well studied. Lunar meteorites belong to the rare category of achondrites - that is, rock meteorites without the characteristic chondrules, small grains of molten minerals. They are distinguished by the fact that, unlike many other rocky meteorites, they do not form from space "dust". Instead, they come directly from space bodies such as the Moon, Mars, larger asteroids or even extinct planets. The chemical composition of these lunar meteorites differs from ordinary terrestrial rocks and meteorites. However, it is easily identifiable and matches samples from the Moon that were brought back to Earth during the Apollo missions. Dimensions: 50x38x23mm Finding location: Bechar, western Algeria You will receive a certificate of authenticity with the meteorite. We are members of I.M.C.A. - numbers 3850 & 8785 (International Meteorite Collectors Association)
