Prehistoric Meteoritic Impact Glass - Go to the link and read a very interesting story about this rock!

Libyan Desert Glass was formed 29 million years ago, very likely when an asteroid or comet hit the surface of the earth like a huge atomic bomb, unleashing enough destructive force to liquefy the rocks, sand and dirt at ground zero. It is a natural glass composed of nearly pure silica (98%), the purest natural glass in the world. A carved scarab on Tutankhamun’s jeweled breastplates is Libyan Desert Glass.

Bright, lustrous crystals of Native Copper. From the Calumet & Hecla Mine, Calumet, Houghton County, Michigan.

Libyan desert glass. A tektite - something created from the impact of lightning or a meteorite. I like that eerie green, and Ive never seen a green tektite before. People at least as far back as the ancient Egyptians of Tutankhamuns day were using this material as a gemstone.

a slice of the Fukang meteorite - so beautiful! When it slammed into the surface of Earth, there was little sign of the beauty that lay inside. But cutting the Fukang meteorite open yielded a breathtaking sight. Within the rock, translucent golden crystals of a mineral called olivine gleamed among a silvery honeycomb of nickel-iron.
