Northwest Africa 14188

Lunar (bas. breccia)
Niger, 2020

Found in 2020 in Niger, NWA 14188 is a rare basaltic breccia lunar meteorite—in other words, basalt fragments that have been cemented together over time to create a breccia. Apollo astronauts collected several Moon rocks that turned out to be basalt breccia, at the bottom slope of the Apennine Bench Formation, above Spur Crater.
