RARE FLANGED BUTTON AUSTRALITE TEKTITE METEORITE Location Found;LAKE TORRENS PLAIN, FLINDERS RANGE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA, AUSTRALIA
Dimensions; 0.89.4 INS x 0.71 INS x 0.42 INS
WEIGHT 4.38 grams
Description: Australite tektites are thought to have originated from the impact of a meteorite or comet.
This perfectly Oval shaped australite has several minute perforations, thought to have arisen from pressure experienced in the upper atmosphere.
This australite has the rare flanged property, whereby spherical tektites melted on their surface and waves of molten tektite collected back up to form a curled up, flying saucer shape.
Flanged meteorites, having the narrow property at its rim, made it very susceptible to breakages by high pressures, hence only very few remain and exist in partial flanges, with this being 3 quarters flanged. Being flanged means this meteorite was longer in a molten state in the atmosphere.
This australite also has perfectly arranged rings on its back, with a smooth, glossy surface.
