TEKTITE (Hunan China) ~2-4cms (Carded)

TEKTITE (Hunan China) ~2-4cms (Carded)

Ref: 23-890

This tektite was said to be from Hunan, an inland province in southeast China, situated adjacent (north and northwest of) Guangdong. Tektites appear to be glassy bodies formed from sediments melted during large terrestrial impact events. Many but not all exhibit tubular to button-shaped forms, often with tiny surface ridges or bubbles, the overall shape consistent with a glass cooling and solidifying during its brief atmospheric passage during “re-entry”. Because they are largely glass, possible sources of mistaken identity include glassy volcanic rocks (e.g., obsidian), slags and other industrial by-products, and waterworn bottle glass recovered on beaches.
