Tektites are natural glass objects primarily composed of Silica. Tektites Found on Earth are formed by large Asteroidal or Cometary impacts with the Earth. Energy from the impact melts terrestrial rock and ejects into the upper reaches of the atmosphere. The final morphologies are largely dependent on the distance from the source crater and the degree of terrestrial weathering/etching.
They often acquire aerodynamic shapes when they partially melt on their return journey. Their name comes from the Greek word 'tektos', meaning 'molten'. The first written reference to tektites was about one thousand and fifty years ago, by Liu Sun in China, who gave them a name meaning 'Inkstone of the Thundergod'.
