Lunar Dust Simulant

The STEMcell Science Shop

Regular price $5.00

This is simulated moon dust. It was engineered to be chemically and mechanically identical to the surface of ancient volcanic plains on the Moon, called maria. The particle size and composition was designed to match that of the samples returned from the lunar mare during the Apollo missions. This sample was produced by the non-profit ExolithLab by CLASS at the University of Central Florida. Your purchase has directly supported further research and development of their simulant database.


Chemical composition:
  • 43% silicates (SiO2)
  • 19% magnesium oxide (MgO)
  • 14% aluminium oxide (Al2O3)
  • trace elements
