DescriptionNWA 11788 Lunar Meteorite Sliced Pair
Lunar (feldspathic breccia)
Mali, Northwest Africa
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.
