Apollo 16
View of Apollo 16 lunar sample no. 67015

A closeup view or "mug shot" of Apollo 16 lunar sample no. 67015, a rock collected by Astronaut Charles M. Duke Jr., Apollo 16 lunar module pilot, on the rim of North Ray crater. It represents the "white breccias" identified by the crewmen. The white matrix consists of finely fractured and crushed mineral and rock dotritus, predominantly feldspar. The black, angular inclusions are so fine-grained a precise characterization was not possible at that time.
