- Meteorite Type: Lunar, NWA 11303
- Meteorite Weight: Less that 1 gram. Comes displayed in 3″x 2” three part acrylic presentation box with magnets.
- Additional Information: Researchers estimate that meteorites from the Moon are between 4.5 to 2.9 billion years old. By comparison, the Earth is approximately 4.5 billion years old, which means some meteorites are as old as our very own planet. Not only are these rocks incredibly ancient, but the journey that they’ve taken to get here is also a perilous one. Few meteorites survive their passage through Earth’s atmosphere, and fewer still are ever recovered by human beings. Meteorites land indiscriminately, and many have fallen in our oceans or in remote areas where they are either unreachable or have been destroyed by the elements. Of the rocks that are successfully recovered, only a small percentage are positively identified as meteorites, let alone meteorites of Martian or lunar origin.That’s why fewer than 0.01% of all meteorites discovered on Earth come from the Moon or Mars!
