Lot 4002

Fantastic Northwest Africa (NWA) 11303 lunar meteorite end cut, comprised of lunar feldspathic breccia. The end cut weighs 14.4 grams and measures approximately 36 mm x 33 mm x 10 mm. This is an actual fragment of the moon, identified as a feldspathic regolith breccia by Drs. Irving and Kuehner at the University of Washington. Among the rarest materials on Earth, this lunar meteorite was expertly prepared in the lab, using a special saw to show off its marvelous fragmented (brecciated) interior; only one side of this wonderful specimen was cut, leaving the rough exterior intact on one side. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites Inc. and the TV show Meteorite Men, as well as a specimen identification card.

Estimate: $2000-$2500
