 >View Microscope
Fact sheet
Description: 

15095 is a breccia containing fragments of basalt and many plagioclase feldspar crystals. The thin section is both small and thin so pyroxene crystals are difficult to discriminate from the similarly grey (between crossed polars) feldspar. Groundmass is glassy. Troilite and metallic iron are present in accessory amounts.

The sample weighed 25.5 grams before analysis and has not been dated.
