Natural Tektites (Indochinites), with Irregular Rounded Shapes, in 2 sizes

Item: tekm107x
Available in 2 approximate sizes: 1.3" size, and in 1.75" to 2" size (please see below)
Discovered at Bao Loc, Vietnam
These natural tektites were collected in Vietnam. They are opaque and have irregular natural rounded shapes with natural pitted surfaces. They are known as "Indochinites", and have been shown by K-Ar radiometric age dating to be approximately 700,000 years old. Scientists believe that the tektite's origin is the result of meteorite impact on the earth. The tektites then formed when molten material, created by the meteorite's hyper-velocity impact, flew through the air hardening into natural glass with aerodynamic forms and surface features.
We have two approximate sizes available: 1.3" long, and a larger 1.75" to 2" long size (sizes are approximate). Please see below to order.

This is the end of our Natural Tektites page displaying:
Natural Libyan Desert Glass Tektites (aka Egyptian Desert Glass), Indochinite Tektites, and other Natural Tektites

See also our genuine moldavite jewelry page. Moldavite is a transparent natural green tektite. See as well our genuine meteorite jewelry page, our genuine moldavite specimens, and our natural meteorites page. On our natural moldavite jewelry page there are many beautiful moldavite necklaces and a large selection of styles and sizes available in genuine moldavite bracelets and moldavite rings.

Tektites are thought to have formed from the extreme heat and pressure produced during a meteorite impact on the surface of the earth, which is believed to have melted both the surface of the earth and the meteorite itself fusing them together into a natural glass tektite which cooled quickly as it fell back down to the earth after the meteorite impact's explosion.

Lybian desert glass tektites are found in an arid uninhabited region of tall sief dunes in the Great Sand Sea in Egypt. They are found on exposed bedrock between the dunes. Wind blown desert sands sculpt these tektites into interesting shapes with semi-polished natural surface finish. Those who trek to this uninhabited region in search of these Lybian desert glass tektites risk much as the region is one of Earth's most inhospitable places, and finding a medjool date palm oasis is very unlikely!
