Lunar Meteorite: NWA unnamed 87

northwestern Africa

Four views of unnamed 87. It contains large clasts of anorthosite (whitish). The meteorite broke apart during atmospheric entry as only one side has a significant fusion crust. Photo credits: Abdelaziz Alhyane

It’s highly feldspathic and computationally most similar to NWA 2200, although it does not look like NWA 2200.
