DescriptionSample 14301 is one of two samples (14301 and 14313) collected at Station G1, 150 m east of the LM on the north rim crest of North Triplet Crater during the second EVA. According to the astronauts, the rock appeared to be similar to the other rocks in the area; these appear to be ejecta from North Triplet Crater. Except for samples dug from trenches, 14301 was the most deeply buried rock returned during the Apollo 14 mission (Swann et al., 1977). This sample was larger then anticipated, and was placed directly in weigh bag 1031 (?) by the astronauts. Sample 14301 is a moderately coherent, light medium gray, polymict breccia. It consists of at least 20% clasts larger than 1mm.
