Colombianite, Colombia, tectite, olive to brown lilac colored


This beautiful shining transparent tectite from Colombia was formed like the Moldavite by a meteroite impact in today's Colombia and Peru. The stone is already over 30 million years old and was formed by the enormous heat when the meteorite hit the earth.

The "fringed" surface of this stone was formed by the force of the meteorite impact, which scattered the individual pieces of glass widely throughout the region.
