Anorthosite, Lunar Meteorite Analog, Hand Specimen, 40g


This rock is a chunk of pure anorthosite mineral - the same mineral which constitutes a large portion of the Moon. Many lunar meteorites are almost entirely anorthosite or contain large amounts of it. Many unweathered (fresh) lunar meteorites have a similar appearance to terrestrial anorthosite.

The specimen being offered here is NOT a meteorite - it is a terrestrial rock that is similar to a lunar meteorite and is intended for outreach or educational purposes. It makes a fine show and tell specimen to represent what a large lunar meteorite would look like.
