Scientists discovered stones on the moon that could not be formed there but came from the ground.
Researchers have explored lunar samples that were delivered to our planet during Apollo 14 in 1971, according to Earth and Planetary Sciences.
An international team of scientists from Sweden, Australia and the United States analyzed the lunar stones and suggested some to reach the Earth's satellite 3.9 billion years ago.
The pieces of quartz, feldspar and zircon were found in the samples tested. In addition, chemical analysis has shown that the scale is formed in an oxidized environment at temperatures typical of the Earth.
"Assuming it could form on the moon, taking into account the crystallization pressure, it will happen at a depth of 167 kilometers, which is very unlikely, not to mention the oxygen level the satellite had four billion years ago, "the scientists said.

The presence of zircon helps scientists in many ways, as this mineral contains uranium whose half-life is known. So they could find that the breed was formed about 4-4.1 billion years ago, probably at a depth of 20 kilometers.
