Hello Stuart and all,

Allan Lang's website provides a visual comparison with lunar mare basalt
15555 from Apollo 15.


You might try contacting Walter Radomski directly at
meteorite_at_compuserve.com for detailed info on the science of NWA 032 so
The last time I spoke with Walter he indicated he was hoping research to
pinpoint the specific area of origin on the moon would be forthcoming.
As you probably know already, NWA 032 samples a different area than any
of the Apollo samples. It would be great to pinpoint it better.

It's a beautiful lunaite, nice and busy under magnification.

Best wishes,
-Charlie Devine
