This is a must have 81.85-gram Impact Melt Breccia also referred to as Suevite coming from the famous Ries crater Germany. 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 14.5 million years ago in Malmian or Jurassic limestone when a meteorite crashed into the earth making a ~10 miles wide crater named the Ries crater in Germany. This gorgeous end piece displays very well and shows typical inclusions of glass bomb as the dark material and crystalline fragments visible throughout the specimen showing the stages of shock metamorphism.

It is amazingly light considering its mass of  113x78x8 mm.  Would be a beautiful addition to any new or existing collection. Comes with a Canagem Collection specimen card.

All specimens are authentic with all provenance information provided.
