Geology of the Moon Analog Rocks with Lunar Simulant Soil, Glass
This is a great study set for studying the geology of the Moon. These 17 unique geological specimens are lunar simulant* analogues of the rocks and minerals brought back to Earth from the Moon, by the Apollo astronauts. Many of the specimens are rare, and 4 glass vials contain carefully created simulants* of lunar dust, lunar soil, and lunar volcanic glasses.
These are great, hard-to-find items and it is a well-designed study set for studying lunar mineralogy, all in one place.
Did you know that there were 28 varietal colored glasses found on the moon? That is a lot of different colored volcanic glasses! Some of the specimens are the pristine anorthosite, rare troilite, whitlockite and 4 glass vials that contain carefully created simulants of JSP lunar dust, lunar soil, and lunar volcanic glasses.
This is a great study set for geologists, teachers, universities and education outreach programs.
Arrives with detailed 11" X 17" folded information sheet and numbers coded to specimens for easy learning.
All study sets are similar to the picture yet different. 12 available.
PLEASE NOTE: *Simulants means these specimens are NOT from the Moon, but are from the Earth.
