Apollo 11 stereo view showing lump of surface powder with colored material

An Apollo 11 stereo view showing a close-up of a small lump of lunar surface powder about a half inch across, with various small pieces of different color. On the surface several small pits are seen, mostly less than one-eight inch in size, and with a glazed surface. They have a raised rim, characteristic of pits made by high-velocity micrometeorite impacts. The exposure was made by the Apollo 11 35mm stereo close-up camera.
