The genuine pieces of the moon contained within this jar have been classified as a lunar feldspathic breccia. Laâyoune is the largest city in Western Sahara and is thought to have been founded by Spanish captain Antonio de Pro in 1938. The name means “the springs,” referring to the oases that furnish the city with water. Laâyoune 002 stones have a grey exterior with striking white clasts; this feldspathic breccia’s composition includes known minerals to lunar meteorites, like anorthite. If you have ever wanted to own a piece of the moon, now is your chance!
