Lunar Sample 15205

MissionApollo 15
Lithologybreccia
Locationcollected from the top of a small boulder on the edge of the Hadley Rille near St. George Crater. The boulder is probably derived from a fresh, small crater part way down the side of the Rille
Description15205 is noteworthy in that it contains a high percentage of KREEP basalt fragments as clasts, but also contains fragments of the mafic green glass, and mare basalt found in the Apollo 15 regolith. 15205 has not been dated, but it has an exposure age of 169 m.y. It has a thin coating of vesicular glass on most surfaces, such that it must have broke free from the boulder along an interior glass vein. Micormeteorite carters on an exposed surface have been carefully studied.
