Lunar sample 14425: characterization and resemblance to high-magnesium microtektites.

Measurements by energy-dispersive x-ray analysis of the surface of lunar sample 14425, a large glass bead, yield a noritic composition enriched in aluminum and magnesium and, as compared with other norites, depleted in iron and especially calcium. The sample is close in composition to the most basic microtektites. Spherical inclusions of nickel-iron… (More)
