Educational and informative, these Tektite cards are great for classroom use, homeschooling or just a fun inexpensive gift for anyone interested in Tektites.
Tektites are natural glass that exhibit pock marks and other surface features indicating high velocity flight through the atmosphere. Scientists don't know exactly how Tektites are formed, but many theories exist. The most accepted theory is that when a large body - like a meteor - impacts the earth, melted soil or sand is thrown high into the atmosphere where it solidifies and falls back to earth.
