NWA 2977 (Lunar Gabbro)

NWA 2977

Description

NWA 2977 (Lunar Gabbro) 0.8g Partial Slice — Laboratory analysis determined this space rock is an olivine-rich cumulate Gabbro. It is thought to be a large Gabbro clast that was part of a larger polymict regolith breccia before it fragmented into many separate pieces during its entry into the Earth’s atmosphere. NWA 2977 is most likely a sample of lunar bedrock. This small piece of the Moon is a gorgeous sight with only the naked eye, but a hand lens or low power microscope will reveal a spectacular scene of yellowish green olivine crystals, grayish white pyroxene crystals, white plagioclase feldspar crystals, and veins of black impact shock glass. The view is absolutely breathtaking and a truly awesome experience! (SR0163)
