This is a must have 21.3 gram Impact Melt Rock from the Dellen Crater, north of Stokholm, Sweden.  It is amazingly light considering its mass of 39x39x9 mm. Some locals call these rocks by the name of “dellenites”, although officially they are impact melt rocks.  Although not a meteorite, impactites are directly linked to them and their impacts and are probably going to be one of the rarest collection items you'll ever own. Impactite is a slag-like glassy object found on the surface of the earth, formed from rock melted by the impact of a meteorite.

The term impactite encompasses shock-metamorphosed target rocks, melts or suevites and mixtures of the two, as well as sedimentary rocks with significant impact-derived components and shocked mineral grains, tektites, anomalous geochemical signatures, etc.

This impactite was formed approx. 89 million years ago when a meteorite crashed into the earth making a round crater which is now a lake about 11 miles wide. The term tagamite was introduced in 1975 to describe impact rock from the Popigai crater in Russia. Varieties of tagamites are described based on crystallinity, texture and clast content.   HT Tagamite differs from other material due to the complete melting of the crystalline matrix and then being subjected to rapid cooling. 

This gorgeous slice displays very well.  Would be a beautiful addition to any new or existing collection. Comes with a Canagem Collection specimen card.
