Lot of 3 moon meteorites (NWA 8687 / NWA 11331 / Lahmada 020) Planetary Achondrite - 0.321 g - (3)
Algeria and Morocco

Here is a nice collection of 3 different lunar meteorites :

- NWA 11331 : 0.098g fragment.
The stones (total weight 318 g) have distinctive reddish-brown, clay-rich exterior coatings. Fresh interiors exhibit whitish clasts in a dark-gray matrix.

- NWA 8687: 0.01g fragment
Microprobe examination of a ~30 × 15 mm, polished, saw-cut surface of the deposit sample, shows a monomict breccia with approximately 70% plagioclase, 25% olivine, 3% orthopyroxene. Primarily fine grained plagioclase, olivine, and orthopyroxene 5-50 μm, scattered larger plagioclase and olivine 200-500 μm, some poikioblastic plagioclase with fine-grained olivines and pyroxenes. Shock melt veins are found throughout. Scatterered Ti-chromite grains up to 100 μm, other accessory phases include FeNi-metal, troilite, ilmenite, and apatite. Minor pigeonite and augite present.

- Lahmada 020 : 0.213g part slice.
Sparse, very small mineral clasts of anorthite, olivine, pigeonite and augite occur within a dominant extremely fine grained, microvesicular matrix containing accessory kamacite, troilite and minor barite.

You can find more information about each meteorite (petrography, place of find, ...) on the Meteoritical Bulletin website.

Each meteorite is sold in a collection box with a separate label / signed certificate of authenticity.
