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

Code: tekm107x
Available 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 them available in 1.75" to 2" long size (sizes are approximate). Please see below to order.

Natural Tektites

We specialize in real tektites found by careful searching in the known tektite strewn fields. The most famous of the tektites are Moldavite, Libyan Desert Glass Tektites, and Indochinite Tektites. These natural tektites are very popular for metaphysical purposes, and they are also highly prized by mineral collectors & meteorite collectors.

Right now, we are offering 100% natural raw tektites in assorted sizes including some very rare size large tektites!

Be sure to also see also our online selection of natural tektite jewelry!

Moldavite

Moldavite is a transparent natural green tektite found in the Moldavia Region of the Czeck Republic. See our selection of natural moldavite specimens. See also our pages displaying natural moldavite jewelry where you will discover beautiful moldavite bracelets, and a large selection of styles and sizes available in moldavite necklaces and moldavite rings.

Libyan Desert Glass Tektites

Libyan desert glass is a golden-yellow tektite from a strewn field in the Great Sand Sea of the Sahara Desert region in eastern Libya and western Egypt.

Libyan desert glass tektites are found mainly in an arid uninhabited region of tall sief dunes. Local prospectors find these wonderful impactites on exposed bedrock between the dunes. Wind blown desert sands sculpt these attractive tektites into unique shapes with semi-polished natural surfaces. This region is one of Earth's most inhospitable places, and those adventurous enough to trek to this uninhabited region in search of these Lybian desert glass tektites must endure severe dehydration in the dry desert heat - finding a medjool date palm oasis is not likely to happen!

Indochinite Tektites

Indochinite tektites are also known as Australasian tektites and as Guangdong tektites. They are found in a huge strewn field loacted in south-east asia. Indochinites have been shown by K-Ar radiometric age dating to be approximately 700,000 years old. Scientists believe that these tektites originated from a meteorite impact on terrestial rocks. The tektite then formed when molten rock, created by the meteorite's hyper-velocity impact, flew through the air hardening into natural glass with aerodynamic forms and surface features.

We also offer natural meteorites.

Tektites

Geologists believe that tektites were formed from extreme heat and pressure produced during a meteorite impact on the surface of the earth, which could have melted both the meteor and the surface of the earth itself, fusing them together in a natural glass tektite which would have cooled and hardened very quickly while it fell back down to the earth after the meteorite's explosive impact.
