Lunar meteorites, also called lunaites, are achondritic meteorites that originated from the Moon and fell to Earth. This can happen as a result of a strong meteor impact on the Moon that can splash rock fragments into space.
In particular, this one presented by us is a small outer fragment of a larger meteorite named NWA 11273 of lunar type.
The asteroid in question found in the Sahara Desert in 2017 has been classified as a feldspathic breach by the University of Washington.
