View of Apollo 16 lunar sample no. 60017

A closeup view or "mug shot" of Apollo 16 lunar sample no. 60017, the precise location of which is not yet determined. Although not verified, it is thought that the rock was probably collected in the area of the Luanr Module (LM). It is one of the most vasicular rocks collected on Apollo 16 and is extremely hard. It is a black matrix breccia of varying, though extremely small grain size, containing only a few white to gray rock inclusions.
