Is the Moon Made of Glass?

The Lunar dust that covers the moon is made up of fine particles of silicon dioxide glass created by meteors hitting the surface.
Over billions of years of these meteorite impacts, the moon’s surface has been ground into a fine powder. Because tiny specks of iron are present in the glass shell of each lunar dust particle, moon dust is magnetic. Lunar dust is very fine, much like a powder, but it cuts like glass because it is glass!
