Libyan Desert Glass specimens (Meteorite Glass / Impact Glass)
Lovely Libyan Desert Glass specimens, technically called Lechatelierite. Most of these pieces are actually found in Egypt, though, and the surrounding Sahara.
You’ll receive a slice – it may or may not be the piece in the photographs.
The soil or other material is catapulted into the atmosphere, and upon falling, gains a ‘glassy’ outer surface with bubbles and other signs of intense heat.
There are other types of Tektite – the more common ‘black Tektite’ and the green ‘Moldavite’.
