While Tektite’s composite origins may be terrestrial, its formation is caused by extraterrestrial means - meteorites! When meteorites hit the earth, large amounts of natural glass tektite can form from the debris and heat upon impact. There are many varietal names for Tektite, depending on content and where they are sourced.
Tektite is named for the Greek word for molten, “tektos”. Often confused with volcanic obsidian glass, tektite is distinguished by its low water content. Its composition is also most similar to shale.
Tektite is often associated with the third eye chakra. It is believed to help locate other realms.
