The Moon rocks returned to Earth by the Apollo astronauts from the lunar surface are a priceless
national treasure. They are NOT available to students and collectors to handle and study closely.
This set, however, uses the research done on the actual Moon rocks to identify the closest Earth rock
analogues available from around the world.
Seven specimens are presented that allow a "hands-on" approach to teach the fact that the Moon
and the Earth are very closely related, and made of much the same materials.
The samples are presented in a 5 inch by 7.5 inch snap-close plastic display case and include a
