This gallery shows the NWA 5000 (Lunar Highlands) Thin Section in Cross Polarized Light. Adam Hupe purchased the stone in Morocco and brought a sample to Dr. Tony Irving of University of Washington for examination and classification. This was the first thin section made of this material. Dr. Irving was working with the thin but it was between examinations so he sent it to me, at Adam's request.What a pleasure it was examining this material and to be able to discuss what I was looking at with Dr. Irving. #tomphillipsmicro http://ow.ly/U86f30b71re
