Found by meteorite hunters between Algeria and the find site of the Erg Chech 002 meteorite. Classified as a feldspathic breccia, Touat 005 is unique in that it contains white plagioclase megacrysts, or particularly large crystalline grains. A possible monomict breccia, it’s likely that Touat 005 is made up of several rocks—of similar lithologies, or physical characteristics—that brecciated on the Moon’s surface. These light-colored grains, which are set against the meteorite’s dark, shock-veined matrix, give Touat 005 its nickname, “The Stained Glass Lunar.”
