    NWA 13261 Meteorite
    Lunar (feldspathic breccia)
    Found: 2020

    Meteorite NWA 13261 is paired with Tisserlitine 001, and the related varieties are both lunar feldspathic breccia found in Mali. This gorgeous piece of the Moon is simply exquisite with a dark and highly textural primary surface contrasted by an "bleached" orangey reverse side. The duality of the coloration coupled with the amazing shape of this offering weighing 380 grams results in an outstanding collectible piece of the rare type. Tisserlitine 001 is the ONLY lunar meteorite to be classified with hydrothermal alternation. This represents a whole different level of lunar meteorite and consists of a massive specimen with many beautiful physical characteristics and incredible size. This is an incomparable, important lunar meteorite with regolithic attributes and indications of secondary partial hydrothermal alteration due to its history.
    Overall Measurements: 4.65 x 3.69 x 1.29 inches (11.81 x 9.36 x 3.27 cm), weighs 380 grams

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