These unusual jet black tektites are from mainland China. Natural specimens from Guang Dong, China generally show
more unusual shapes with much deeper pitting and furrowing than other tektites. Since no one has ever seen a tektite
being made their true origin is not yet known it is believed that they were formed approximately 15 million years ago
when a huge meteorite collided with the earth with such force that melted rock and meteoritic fragments are thrown at
high speeds into the upper atmosphere. Here they cool and harden, preserving their splashed, melted shape, later they
rained down on China. Tektites are found in areas that often our thousands of miles apart.
