Glass meteorites, known as "extraterrestrial rocks", are rare and precious. They are rare and rare among many kinds of meteorites. Researchers can learn more about the early universe by studying these meteorites and have high scientific research value. The distribution of glass meteorites on the earth is completely different from other meteorites. Glass meteorites have certain falling areas on the earth. The glass meteorites in each falling area represent a celestial body falling event. The occurrence probability of this event can be said to be very rare, which is the reason why the value of glass meteorites is very high.
Because the appearance is similar to obsidian, it is also known as obsidian. But they are different in composition and structure. Most of the glassy meteorites are similar in shape to the shape of molten sputters, which are scattered in groups on the continent or in the sea floor sediments. Glass meteorites are black, dark green and brown in color, with elongated bubbles and bubbles of different sizes on the surface. Some of them are like crater like patterns on the surface of the moon.
Meteorites are scattered the beauty of nature, is silent poetry, the immortality of the painting, all through the ages many scholars has close relationship with the meteorite, meteorites, referred to as "day foreign aerolite (meteorite) is beyond the earth has not burning the cosmic meteor from original orbit or into pieces scattered to the surface of the earth or other planets, stone, iron or Shi Tie mixed material, also known as the" meteorite.
The glass meteorite is nonmagnetic, weighing 141.3g. Although after a long period of weathering, it is still well preserved and of excellent quality. It is a rare rare treasure and worth collecting. Because the glass meteorite can keep the properties of billions of years and are very similar to the earth rocks, it is generally difficult to distinguish, so the probability of finding meteorites is relatively small, and its scientific research value and collection value are very high.
According to the description of the British biologist Charles Darwin in 1844, obtained a button-shaped vitreous stone in Australia, thought to be obsidian (Darwin glass), later found this kind of similar vitreous stone in the world, and known as "glass meteorite". Vitreous meteorite is tough because of quality of a material, can be carved into hand act the role ofing, bosom act the role ofing, the price on market of gem market is very expensive.
In recent years, the meteorite that is called outer space guest enters people's line of sight gradually, many collectors are fond of it more admiringly, domestic meteorite collects upsurge to also rise quietly.
