Fact sheet
Description: 

10019 is a coherent glass-matrix regolith breccia with 10% porosity. The breccia contains 35% glass and there is evidence of apparent sintering, especially near glass spheres. About 25% of the sample consists of highland components. Our thin section contains many clasts of Mare basalt (rotations 1 & 2) as well as glass and mineral fragments.

The sample weighed 297 grams before analysis and has not been dated.
