INDOCHINITE (tektite) - China

INDOCHINITE TEKTITE
 
A tektite from Guangdon Province, South China - formed by a giant meteorite impact
 
800,000 years old
 
Tektites are mysterious objects, formed from a shower of molten rock ejected from a giant meteorite impact at hypersonic velocities.  The tektites from Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, China) are known as indochinites and are mostly rounded or dumbbell-shaped pieces of black glass with a pitted surface.
 
The crater responsible for these tektites has never been found but it is thought to have produced all the tektites found from South China to Tasmania – an area known as the Australasian Strewn Field and covering one tenth of the Earth’s surface.
