Lunar (bas. breccia)
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.
Out of the 69,000 known meteorites, this is 1 of 18 known lunar basaltic breccias with an extremely low total known find weight of a minuscule 260 grams.
