Indochinite Tektite

 

Origin: China, Guandong Province, Maoming area

 

Indochinite, a variety of Tektite, were ejected into the Earth's upper atmosphere by a meteorite impact (ca. 790 000 years ago) and subsequently cooled to form the distinctive glass-like structure. This variety of tektite is distinctly dark black in contrast to the green of European Moldavite tektites. They are known from the Australasian strewnfield, which includes most of Southeast Asia.
