Weathered Fusion Crust or?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I found a rather large breccia with brown coating (mostly in recessed areas) and it looks similar to some of the lunar meteorites. I am curious if anyone here can chime in on this being fusion crust as it is not only in the cracks/recessed areas, but also on the  stone itself.

 

Thanks in advance

It doesn't look like weathered fusion crust to me.

Thanks Mike....just a perspective from Lunar meteorite pics from Top Meteorites web site that I was comparing to. I appreciate the quick response

There's a lunar strewn field recently discovered in NWA where the soil leaves behind that yellow/orange coating, maybe that's what it is?  I don't think lunar fusion crust is that color, I believe it's black-ish.
