The Moon rock on display was once part of the much larger "Great Scott Rock," collected by the Apollo 15 crew July 30, 1971. It is about 4 billion years old, older than almost all rocks on the Earth's surface.

The "Great Scott Rock" is lunar sample 15555. NASA's Lunar Sample Public Displays page has a "Complete List of Lunar Sample Displays" PDF which lists this sample as 15555,767.
