A slice of Yamato 86032. The yellow letters designate black (impact melt), dark gray, light gray, and white (anorthosite) lithologies. Textually, the rock is probably best described as a feldspathic fragmental breccia. Photo credit: from Yamaguchi et al. (2004)

Randy Says…

The Y-82192 clan  is a typical feldspathic lunar meteorite, but one that is richer in sodium (1.34x, i.e., more albitic plagioclase) than is typical.
