North West Africa 482
I was one of the investors in Mike Farmer's January 2001 trip to Morocco where he purchased an absolutely stunning Lunar meteorite. It was an incredible oriented complete fresh stone, covered with flow lines and rollover rim. It weighed 1015 grams making it the second largest and freshest Lunar meteorite ever found. It is a fabulous meteorite with large black glass veins and melt pockets in an almost pure white matrix. It is completely unlike any other lunar meteorite, but it is similar to some of the Apollo samples. I had the privilege of cutting this meteorite into slices for the investors. Each piece will come with a certificate signed by myself as the cutter. The certificate will have on it a photo of the complete stone as well as a photo of the piece purchased.
The whole uncut stone!
