TEKTITE PHILIPPINITE LARGE

A Tektite Philippinite Large formation.  Not quite a Breadcrust but close.  This amazing piece was created after being fired into the Earth’s upper atmosphere, propelled by a meteorite impact.  The size of a nuclear explosion would have melted the sand into molten glass.  This liquid glass would have been accelerated into the outer atmosphere or space and then fallen back to earth.  It would have cooled whilst traveling through the atmosphere then falling back to Earth.  Tektites over 100g are uncommon.  An oresome collector specimen.

Location:
Phillipenes.

Dimensions:
8cm x 5.5cm x 3.8cm, 163g.
