"Moon rock" turns out to be wood.
The exhibit at the Rijksmuseum, originally gifted to Willem Drees in 1969 by then US ambassador William Middendorf as a souvenir of the trip by three US astronauts on July 20, 1969. 

"When we received it, we insured it for 100,000 florins or 50,000 euros in today's money," said Xandra van Gelder, the editor-in-chief of the museum's internal magazine. But she told AFP that it was "hardly worth 50 euros," adding that museum authorities had been alerted by space and other experts. This was confirmed by independent studies on the exhibit which is roughly the size of a matchbox. The US space agency NASA gifted pieces of the alleged moon rock to several countries. The Rijksmuseum, one of the world's top museums, is better known for its vast collection of paintings by Rembrandt.
