The LHS-1-25A Lunar Highlands 25% Agglutinated Simulant has been developed by Exolith Lab. It is a higher-fidelity variation of LHS-1, and is a mineral-based simulant appropriate for a generic or average highlands location on the Moon with an intermediate regolith maturity - which speaks to the integrated exposure the regolith had to the micrometoerite and solar wind environment. 

The simulant consists of 75% LHS-1 Lunar Highlands Simulant and 25%  Anorthosite Agglutinates, by weight. The addition of agglutinates increases fidelity of LHS-1 in terms of glass composition, magnetic properties, and mechanical properties. These agglutinates are produced from high temperature anorthosite. This glass content is important for mimicking the Lunar surface since it has a large glass content formed from meteor impacts. Exclusively Anorthosite Agglutinates are also available for sale on our site here.

All of our simulants are an upgraded, high-fidelity alternative to the commonly known JSC-1A simulant.
