This custom museum display showcases an Authentic Lunar Meteorite. 4.5 billion years old (Oldest Mineral on Planet Earth is 4.4 billion years old) Cosmic-ray exposure history established with noble-gas measurements have shown that all lunar meteorites were ejected from the Moon in the past 20 million years. After leaving the Moon, most lunar meteoroids go into orbit around Earth and eventually succumb to Earth's gravity. Some meteoroids ejected from the Moon get launched into orbits around the Sun. These meteoroids remain in space longer, but eventually intersect the Earth's orbit and land.

All six of the Apollo missions on which samples were collected landed in the central nearside of the Moon, an area that has subsequently been shown to be geochemically anomalous by the Lunar Prospector mission. In contrast, these lunar meteorites are random samples of the Moon and consequently provide a more representative sampling of the lunar surface than the Apollo samples. Half the lunar meteorites on earth, sample material from the farside of the Moon.

Such lunar meteorites collected in Africa and Oman, are the only source of moon rocks available for private ownership. All rocks collected during the Apollo moon-landing program are property of the United States government or of other nations to which the U.S. conveyed them as gifts and held by those governments for research, and educational purposes only. Apollo moonrocks have never been given or sold by the U.S. government to private citizens. NASA retains ownership of the rocks themselves.

No lunar meteorite has ever been found in North America, South America, or Europe.
