Comments: B&W image of the largest yoshiokaite crystal yet found (grain #23); note fracturing probably caused by shock deformation and the groundmass of regolith glass.(AmMin v75:676). Location: At a distance of about 224 m from their Apollo 14 lunar lander, in the bottom of a 30-cm-deep trench, Mitchell and Shepard collected the two-gram rock that is regolith breccia 14076.

Studies ofanother powder and another thin sec-tion from the other portion of 14076 reveal a different composition and no yoshiokaite. The entire sample is a complex regolith breccia, made up of two very different regolith types. Chemical studies of both parts of sample
