Lunar agglutinates are aggregates of regolith grains fused together in a glassy matrix of shock melt produced during smaller-scale mostly micrometeorite impacts. Agglutinate formation is a key space weathering process under which the optically-active component of nanophase metallic Fe npFesup 0 is added to the lunar regolith. Here we have used energy-dispersive X-ray EDX compositional spectrum imaging in the SEM to quantify the chemical homogeneity of agglutinitic glass, correlate its homogeneity to its parent soil maturity, and identify the principle chemical components contributing to the shock melt compositional variations.
