This is a must have 28.35-gram Impact Melt Glass from the famous Sudbury Impact Structure in Ontario Canada. Its dimensions are 49x44x10  mm.  Although not a meteorite, impactites are directly linked to them and their impacts and are probably going to be one of the rarest collection pieces you'll ever own. 

About 1.87 billion years ago, an object from space 9 kilometers in diameter, slammed into Canada a little north of Sudbury, Ontario creating the second largest impact structure on the earth. This impact was equivalent to a billion tons of TNT; an impact so great that it cracked the earth, in fact they still have earthquakes because of it today!

The many mineral rich deposits and strange rock formations in such close proximity has attracted attention for 100's of years, long before its impact origin was known, from Thomas Edison, who built a lab on site to NASA Moonwalker "Gene" Cernan, who studied and collected geology samples as part of his pre-moon mission training.

Would be a beautiful addition to any new or existing collection. Comes with a Michael Cottingham Meteorite Collection and a Canagem Collection specimen card.

All specimens are authentic with all provenance information provided.

Specimen Information Cards and/or Appraisals are provided when applicable.
