Natural and genuine Libyan Desert Tektite, or “Desert Glass” found in Northern Africa.
This specimen measures about 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ x 7/8″ and weighs 20.0 grams.
This naturally occurring glass-like tektite is suspected to be of meteoric origin. Scientists are in constant debate about its origin. It is transparent, having a light to medium yellow/gold color. It shows ablation, although that may have occurred as the result of being sculpted by sand as opposed to flying through the atmosphere. Either way, it is a unique specimen.
Item pictured is the item that will be received and will come with information label.
