Fact sheet
Description: 

14255 is a regolith breccia with glass coat (not visible in the thin section). It is a friable fine-grained, glass-matrix breccia with a thin coat of black glass over most of its surface. It has a high percentage of agglutinates (matrix free). The matrix contains near colourless and light-brown glass. The Apollo 14 regolith breccias (vitric matrix breccias) are slightly more aluminous than the Fra Mauro breccias (crystalline matrix breccias).

The sample weighed 22.12 grams before analysis. It has not been dated.
