Seller: fujmon (9.059) 99.9%, Location: Hilo, Hawaii, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 232522576448 Item for auction is a 0.64g endcut of my lunar meteorite, NWA 10678. A 49.15g desert varnished stone was purchased out of Morocco in February 2016. Montana Meteorite Laboratory cut and polished the stone, and Dr Tony Irving analyzed and classified it, describing it as an UNPAIRED olivine-poor feldspathic breccia composed of angular mineral grains in a finer matrix. UNPAIRED meteorites are mineralogically and chemically UNIQUE and unlike any others in their classification. Minerals are anorthite (An95.0-98.2Or0.1), orthopyroxene (Fs39.9Wo4.8, FeO/MnO = 54), pigeonite (Fs31.8Wo14.7, FeO/MnO = 49), subcalcic augite (Fs21.2Wo33.9, FeO/MnO = 44), rare olivine (Fa24.8-47.7, FeO/MnO = 83-97), ilmenite, Ti-chromite, troilite, taenite and zirconolite. Bulk composition (R. Korotev, WUSL) INAA of subsamples gave (in wt.%) FeO 3.8, Na2O 0.39; (in ppm) Sc 7.2, Cr 490, Co 13, La 6.2, Sm 2.8, Eu 0.91, Yb 1.8, Lu 0.25, Hf 2.0, Th 0.9. Randy Korotev, research scientist specializing in lunar meteorites at Washington University in Saint Louis says, 'I think this one is unique.’ This is a unique specimen that would make a perfect addition to your collection, and comes in a quality labeled display box, along with a Big Kahuna Meteorites Certificate of Authenticity.
