These slices were cut thin to maximize the surface area of each slice and have received a polish to display the beauty of this remarkable meteorite. Many of the slices have microscopic specks of meteoritic iron. The strongly contrasting tones of the mineral clasts make this one of the more attractive lunar meteorites available to collectors.
