Name: Moung-Nong Type
Location: Thailand

These tektites were formed by the same event that created the other Australasian tektites some 750,000 years ago. 

        However, the layered structure of these tektites suggest that they formed in place on the ground as molten pools, 

rather than solidifying in the atmosphere like other tektites.
