What are you saying? Where do you get this idea?
I have in my collection a very strange completely oriented "Millbillillie" of 93 grams that has a distinctly different very dark olivine green fusion crust. I got it out of the same batch that Bob Haag got his little moon rock.
The piece I have is so beautiful with perfect orientation that I am loath to cut a piece of it off for analysis. But after seeing the fusion crust on that new moon rock, NWA482, and noting how similar it is to the one that I have, I might make a cast of the piece then, after cutting a small sample "restore" the place where it was removed.
Anyway, you are pulling a lot of legs in joking about Millbillillie being a moon rock.
