Introduction: NWA 8687 is a troctolitic lunar meteorite collected from the Northwest African desert in 2014. It is composed primarily of plagioclase, olivine, and low-Ca pyroxene, with minor high-Ca pyroxene (augite) and spinel. Bsed on the petrology and geochemical data, NWA 8687 is likely paired with other lunar anorthositic troctolite granulitic breecias (NWA 5744, NWA 8599, NWA 10140, NWA 10178, NWA 10318, and NWA 10401) [1-3]. Here, we presented the petrological and mineralogical studies… CONTINUE READING
