It doesn't sound so far fetched to me. Afterall, the Moon and the
Asteroids are very similar chemically. The only main difference is that
Anorthosite is more common on the moon than on Asteroids, not that it
doesn't exist on them. It was even thought not long ago that the moon was an
Asteroid that was captured by the Earth's gravity.

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.
