USA got some 400 kg of Moon rocks with Apollo program.

Did they share rocks with other countries in form of permanent gifts?

If yes, then which countries got such gift, and what information about their locations in recent times is available?

Did USA share Moon rocks with other countries on a permanent basis?


There were both loans and gifts; more than a Stack Exchange answer can properly cover.

So for details see the December 8, 2011 Office of Audits report NASA’s Management of Moon Rocks and Other Astomaterials Loans for Research, Education, and Public Display REPORT No. IG-12-007 (Assignment No. A-11-015-00)
