14169 (5) Crystalline breccia

Fact sheet
Description: 

Samples 14169-14175 were returned to Earth in the same bag. They have an identical lithology and may be parts of 14303 which was also stored in the same bag. This conclusion is, however, disputed. The samples all have a seriate fragmental clast population and seriate grain size distribution of the matrix. A number of the broken clasts appear to be basaltic. These small breccias samples haven’t been studied, perhaps because of the suggestion that they were part of 14303.

The sample weighed 78.66 grams before analysis. It has not been dated.
