Lunar Sample 15206

MissionApollo 15
Lithologyimpact melt breccia
LocationLunar sample 15206 was broken off the same boulder as 15205 and apparently has the same chemical composition. However, it has a different texture (Wilshire and Moore 1974, Dymek et al. 1974). It has not been dated.
DescriptionIt is a vesicular glassy breccia containing KREEP basalt and mare basalt clasts. Unlike 15205 the clasts are shocked and penetrated by glass and there is a higher proportion of matrix (figure 3). It is an impact melt rock, that was probably generated from a regolith.
