Lunar meteorite Tisserlitine 001

9 x 5.5 cm.
Weight: 112 g.
Site of discovery: Mali, 2019.

Only in 0.1% of found meteorites, a connection with the moon could be verified.

Notes:
Lunar samples are readily identified by their highly specific geological, mineralogical, chemical and radiation signatures. Lunar minerals were formed in a weak gravitational field, absence of water, with no free oxygen, and have been altered through exposure to cosmic radiation. The minerals comprising the Moon‘s crust are limited. Lunar specimens contain gases originating from the solar wind with isotope ratios that are markedly different than the same gases found on Earth (also as a result of cosmic radiation). When asteroids strike the Moon‘s surface, chunks of the Moon are launched into space in much the same way that dust is launched into the air when a child dives onto a bed. One merely needs to view the craters of the Moon to imagine the number of asteroids whose impact would have provided sufficient energy to eclipse the Moon‘s gravitational influence and launch surface material into space. Less than 0.1% of all meteorites recovered are lunar in origin, with less than 150 pounds of meteorites originating from the Moon known to exist.
