A piece of Moon

A piece of Moon on sale – Pay Rs 18.9 crore and own it: This particular rock is one of 30 lunar meteorites that landed on Earth hundreds or thousands of years ago when a comet or an asteroid collided with our Moon and broke some pieces of its surface. On April 30, 2020, British auction house Christie’s, known for selling unique and expensive items, announced that it would offer one of the largest moon coins in the world for private sale. The 13.5 kg piece of rock, nicknamed NWA 12691, is the fifth largest lunar meteorite and is sold by Christie’s for 2 million pounds, which translates to 2.5 million dollars or 18.9 crores of rupees.

The NWA 12691 is not among the lunar rocks that NASA astronauts brought with them on the Apollo missions. These specimens are owned by the United States government and are stored at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Remarkably, NWA 12691 is larger than any part reported by NASA.

This particular rock is one of 30 lunar meteorites that landed on Earth hundreds or thousands of years ago when a comet or an asteroid collided with our Moon and broke some pieces of its surface. NWA 12691 was found in 2018 by an anonymous investigator in the area around the borders of Western Sahara, Alegria and Mauritania. After the specimen was identified as lunar rock, Dr. Lawrence Stifler purchased it for an undisclosed amount. He is a private collector who owns at least five other such lunar pieces including the largest one that weighs 58 kgs.
