NWA 5000 Meteorite
RR Auction’s Space Exploration showcase is an extremely rare slice of a lunar meteorite known as NWA (Northwest Africa) 5000, which was discovered in July 2007 and was the largest known lunar meteorite at that time. Weighing over 25-pounds, it was a larger piece of Moon than anything in NASA has in its Apollo collections. Since its discovery, the moon rock has been sliced several times.
