Indochinite Tektites



Tektites are chunks of glassy material found in a number of locations across the globe. Most are blackish in colour and show signs of exposure to intense heat. We sell two types, Irgizite or Indochinite.

Geologists generally believe tektites were created when massive meteorite impacts hurled molten surface rocks high into the atmosphere, then remelting on re-entry producing the characteristic shape and evidence of ablative heating.

Tektites are one of our best selling products and look great in any collection.
