147 gram end-cut.   Unclassified

Graham writes:
New Lunar from Mauritania, confirmed and under classification. Analysis so far shows that the sparse small flecks of metal are nickel-iron (6% Nickel and probably impactor from events on the moon). The white clasts are extremely shocked anorthite with much higher calcium content than any terrestrial feldspar. The melt areas contain many small vesicles and clasts of clinopyroxene, plus troclolytic clasts.

Hopefully heading for a Museum here in the UK.
