Lithologybasalt
LocationSamples 15485 and 15486 were collected from the side of the boulder at Dune Crater, along with 15499, which was from the top.
Description15485 and 15486 are samples of vitrophyric pigeonite basalt, a rapidly cooled variety of quartz-normative basalt found to be rather common at the Apollo 15 site. They are very vesicular with porphyritic, diktytaxitic texture. The age of this boulder is 3.4 b.y. and it has an exposure age of 114 m.y. (determined on 15499).
