Details

Up for bid is a cool piece of material called Tektite.  This was found in the Guangdong Province, China.  These rocks have a high silica content and are also rich in oxides of potassium, calcium, and aluminum.  There are about 7-10 different shapes of tektites but the usual shapes are round like a disc, teardrop. or ovoid.  The surface may be smooth or rough.  It is believed that Tektite is formed when a meteorite impact melts material from the Earth's surface and catapults it up to several hundred kilometers away from the impact site.  The molten material cools and solidifies to glass.

 

THE TEKTITES PICTURED ARE A REPRESENTATIVE SAMPLE OF WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE - meaning the ones in the picture are not the exact ones you will receive, but similar.  The total weight you will receive will be approximately 250 grams, with various individual weights and shapes.
