This incredible Moon Dust Pendant is one of the most wonderful and intriguing pieces of Meteorite Jewellery we have! The Moon Dust Pendant is made with a genuine sample of moon meteorite dust, meaning it was once part of the surface of the Moon!
We all feel close to the Moon as it is so often visible out of the window, but this doesn't compare to the chance to actually wear a piece of the Moon! The sample itself is dust collected while cutting a Lunar meteorite. The meteorite was sourced from one of the most respected collectors of planetary meteorites in the world. The meteorites used have been analysed by a top laboratory and given an official meteorite number.
Designation: North West Africa 4881
History: Found in 2005 and confirmed as Achondrite (lunar, granulitic breccia).
Physical Characteristics: A single, broken, irregular conical stone (606g) partially covered by translucent, pale greenish fusion crust and with a pale gray-brown interior (Fig. 2).
Petrography: (A. Irving and S. Kuehner, UWS) Fine-grained recrystallized breccia composed of larger plagioclase grains (converted partially to maskelynite) poikilitically enclosing very small grains (mostly 30-80 microns) of low-Ca pyroxenes, olivine, Ti-chromite, ilmenite, troilite and metal.
Mineral Compositions and Geochemistry: Olivine (Fa40.4-58.8, FeO/MnO = 91-100), plagioclase (An96.1-98Or<0.1), pigeonite (Fs32.0-64.5Wo9.5-13.1, FeO/ MnO = 51.1-62).
Classification: Achondrite (lunar, granulitic breccia). This stone is paired with NWA 3163 (Irving et al. 2006) and NWA 4483; in combination these specimens evidently represent naturally broken pieces from a crusted lunar meteorite weighing at least 2448g. Specimens: A total of 20g of sample and one polished mount are on deposit at UWS.
