In 2018, specimens of moon rock were hurled onto Earth’s surface after colliding with an asteroid or comet. Landing in the Sahara desert, a total of 30 different meteorites were collected as part of the shower. A large piece that stood out is known by the name of NWA 12691 weighing approximately 29 lbs. It has been listed for sale at $2.5 million to prepare the launch of an American space rocket. 

Moon for Sale

“I’ve been lucky enough to handle a few lunar meteorites at Christie’s over the years, but every time I see this specimen in the warehouse the sheer size of it bowls me over,” the head of Science & Natural History for Christie’s, James Hyslop, said in a statement. “Weighing over 13.5kg, it is so much larger than anything else that has ever been offered before. The experience of holding a piece of another world in your hands is something you never forget.”

 

Lunar meteorites are a rarity on Earth. According to Christie’s, there are about 1,400 pounds on the planet. They are identified by texture and chemical makeup. These specimens also contain gases from solar wind.

As a fellow moon lover, I believe the moon’s beauty can never truly be captured. While this piece is a phenomenal rock, just remember all you have to do is look up and she’ll always glow upon you.
