Muong Nong-type tektites are one of three tektite groups occurring on land (the others being splash-form and aerodynamically shaped tektites). They differ in appearance from splash-form tektites by having irregular, blocky shapes and a layered structure.

The crater is likely to be situated on or near Indochina, e.g., underwater, on the continental slope east of Vietnam, or on land (i.e., the Cambodian lake of Tonle Sap). The production of tektites seems to require special impact conditions because otherwise there should be more than four tektite strewn fields. Muong Nong-type tektites have not travelled far from the site of the impact, which most probably occurred somewhere in Indochina into post-Archean upper crustal sediments.

Muong Nong tektites or layered tektite glass is not commonly found in any of the tektite strewnfield except the Indochinite strewnfield. In all the others this layered glass is found only as a very rare piece. But, in the younger Indochinite impact region this glass is found as both large and small masses. It is chemically dry though not as dry as splash form tektite glass an is therefore not possibly of any other origin than that by asteroid or comet impact. But, it has the appearance of not having traveled up into the atmosphere as the splash forms have. Muong Nong may represent some form of impact melt sheet glass. Large masses present the appearance of having formed by the repeated flowing of thin layers of molten glass. Building layered by layer a thick sheet which is much more bubbly and much less homogeneous than splash form glass while still being chemically similar to that of the aerodynamically formed specimens.

Tektite Crystal Healing Properties:

Tektites are ideal meditative tools, helping one to expand our consciousness into the highest frequencies. They have an empowering effect on people and can help to increase synchronicities and connections. Tektites have an invigorating effect on the aura, allowing it to expand and ‘throw off’ energetic debris, leading to a more responsive, free-flowing energetic body. Tektites are also a great absorber of negative energies and thoughts.

Tektite History and Uses:

The name Tektite comes from the Greek word “tektos” meaning molten. They are found in shades of black, green or grey and are 14 million years old. They are regarded as talismans of luck in many cultures and have been used to accelerate healing from illness and injuries.

Tektite Geological Description:

Tektites are glass objects associated with meteoric impacts. Their crystal system is amorphous and they have a hardness of 5.5 to 6.5. They are rich in silicon dioxide. There is debate as to whether Tektites were themselves meteorites, terrestrial rocks melted by meteorite impact, or some fusion of terrestrial and extraterrestrial material. Tektites have been found in Australia, North America, Africa, China and Southeast Asia.

Please note our tektite are 100% natural raw pieces directly picked from the meteorite fields of Eastern Thailand usually bordering Laos Cambodian regions.
