    Description

    NWA 11788 Lunar Meteorite Sliced Pair
    Lunar (feldspathic breccia)
    Mali, Northwest Africa
    Found: 2017

    This dynamic duo represents the product of halving a smaller complete individual of NWA 11788. This is another lunar meteorite and offers an unusually dark coloration. Each uneven "half" features a polished display surface and a natural, rough exterior. The duality of both pieces is amazing as the contrast of the two differential aspects is severe. NWA 11788 is a feldspathic breccia which was found in Mali in 2017. An interesting example for many reasons, this extraordinary space puzzle weighs 53 grams when combined.
    Overall Measurements: 2.13 x 1.22 x 0.58 inches (5.42 x 3.11 x 1.47 cm), weighs 53 grams

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]


    Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000.
