Lunar Sample 15382

MissionApollo 15
Sample Typerake
Lithologybasalt
Locationcollected, along with 15386, as part of a rake sample from the soil just inside the rim of Spur Crater, Apollo 15.
Descriptionpristine feldspathic basalt with high rare-earth-element content. Only a few pristine samples of this important rock type were returned from the moon, also including 15386 and fragments in 15434 and other Apollo 15 soils. These fragments were recognized as samples of chilled volcanic liquid and have been a source of much speculation
