Locality type:


Located in a mountain region between Mare Crisium and Mare Fecunditatis (closer to the latter).


Lunar regolith (continental type) probing site. Aggregates of silicate and sulfide clasts, among which a native hafnium particle was found. In comparison to mare samples, these continental ones have a higher degree of halogenide abundance.
