Anorthosite Lunar Crust Moon Rock Analog Polished Face
This dynamically large hand specimen of anorthosite makes the perfect lunar analog to help teach about the geology of the Moon! This pristine anorthosite is 95% white anorthosite. Anorthosite makes up the lunar highlands which is thought to be “predominantly” composed of anorthosite, and is the white portion of the moon seen in the night’s sky.
This is one of the best specimens from a highly regarded remote locale, in the mountains of California. Most anorthosite from other locations is a dingy gray or darker.
This museum grade anorthosite specimen is similar in color to the "Genesis Rock" brought back from the Moon on Apollo 15.
Size: 210mm L X 140mm W X 120mm D, Weight 7.8 lb.
Ships with tag and stand. Photographic cube and large stand not included. Adjustable large stand available for an extra $65, or we can suggest an outlet for it.
If you have been looking for some great anorthosite to help teach about lunar geology this would be an ideal specimen.
Note: This specimen is NOT from the Moon.
