The LHS-1-25A Lunar Highlands 25% Agglutinated Simulant has been developed by the CLASS Exolith Lab. It is a high-fidelity, mineral-based simulant appropriate for a generic or average highlands location on the Moon with an intermediate regolith maturity. 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.
