This is a large 196.3 grams oddly shaped Rizolite Tektite from Rizo Region, Philippines. Although not a meteorite, tektite is directly linked to them or their impacts, just consider its age of around 780,000 years old.
Tektite is very interesting because of the persistent mystery that resisted clear explanations of there creation for generations of geologists. This piece displays very well and is a very nice size showing multiple characteristics of its origin.
It is a oddly round shape with a beautiful pitted body. This special piece comes with 2 specimen cards including the Signed Original Mark Bostick Collection. Would make a beautiful addition to any collection.
