Locationchipped from a prominent boulder (3 meter) at station 6A on the Apennine Front. Station 6A was the highest point reached on the Apennine Front (about 100 meters above the level of the LM).
Descriptionclast-bearing impact-melt rock with a crystalline matrix made up of fine-grained intergrown pyroxene, plagioclase and ilmenite laths (figure 6). Prominent clasts include mineral fragments of plagioclase and pyroxene, along with lithic clasts of KREEP basalt, granite and quartz monzodiorite (QMD). Flow banding in the matrix includes small irregularly-shaped vugs.
