Francesco, This puts the Fe/Mn ratio at 74.84. This is indeed within the Lunar range of the most famous lunar meteorite "Calcalong Creek". I possess the results of the actual study and the range based on various samples ranges from 67.3 to 72 so, that does not rule it out as being Lunar. The high SiO2 makes it doubtful but, Lunars require extensive research. I'd have it tested by a lab to be sure.
