MOON DUST Moon - 1 g

Description
MOON DUST Moon - 1 g
Morocco

An opportunity to have authentic moon dust in your hands.

Glass vial containing 1 gram of dust from our satellite, obtained from the NWA 13306 meteorite (Feldspar Breccia).

Due to the huge impact of a meteorite on the Moon surface, material from the satellite was ejected into outer space. This material travelled through space until, due to the force of gravity of our planet, or because we encounter these fragments throughout our career, and they eventually fell into our planet.

Except for the Apollo missions and the nearly 380 kg of lunar samples they brought back to Earth, this is the only way we have to be able to touch a piece from another planet.

At Expometeoritos, we take care of dissemination, talks, workshops, analyses, classification and exhibitions of meteorites.

We are members of:

.- IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association) #8187
.- Meteoritical Society
.- American Meteor Society

All our pieces are certified and, if the value of a piece is over €300, we also provide its chemical composition analysis, carried out in our facilities by X-ray spectrography.
