This product contains the individual minerals that make up our Lunar regolith simulants, Lunar Highlands (LHS-1, LHS-1D) and Lunar Mare (LMS-1, LMS-1D). The minerals in this sample set are the same that are used in our batch simulants. This sample set has been made available for any mineral characterization, such as XRD or XRF, or baseline measurements needed for experimentation.
This recipe was designed based on information collected from the returned Apollo Lunar Soil samples and thus the particle size distribution and texture of the constituent minerals is targeted to match that of typical Apollo soils.
ExoLith Lab understands how valuable the scientific research being done to further space exploration is and wants to support the lunar regolith and geology community as best as possible. For any custom simulant or specific minerals needed in larger quantities, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
