Tektite Tumblestones

Interesting tumbled Tektite – also known as space glass, or meteoritic glass. These are formed when a meteorite strike throws mud and other materials into high atmosphere, melting them.

The more you buy, the cheaper they get – up to a point, of course! Unfortunately, we currently only sell the single size – medium stones around 20-30MM approximately.

The most commonly known and most prized type of Tektite is Moldavite – green Tektite from the area around Czechia. Black Tektites, while not common, can be found worldwide.

The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade – but some photographs are still on their way!

What are tumblestones?

Tumblestones are stones that have been put in spinning barrels with an abrasive compound for weeks or months. This slowly rounds off the rough rock and corners – the stones are then cleaned, and placed with a less abrasive grit. This happens several times until the stones are placed into a barrel with a polishing compound for their final polish.
