If true, An interesting observation ...

Most  rocks, when  ground  to  a  fine  particle  size,  
are  relatively  colorless,  so  their  color  indices  are  
quite  low.  Only  after   irradiation   does  the  color  
move  toward  the  lunar  values.  The  general  ten-
dency  of  the  effect  of  irradiation  is  to  redden  rock  
particles.  Evidently  the dark  compounds  that  coat  
these particles absorb more heavily  in the blue than
in  the  red. - pg. 13
