Fact sheet
Description: 

10018 is a rounded, dark grey, regolith breccia (weight 213 grams) similar in composition to iron-rich lunar soil samples. It has a glassy matrix in which are found basalt fragments, anorthosite fragments (pieces of lunar highland rocks), minerals, glass-welded aggregates (agglutinate), and a range of different types of glass fragments. Overall the rock appears to be a high glass breccia with minor crystalline inclusions.
