An intriguing grey and white specimen. One side has a smooth finished appearance with segments that appear stretched as though they flowed. The reverse face, the inteiror of the piece, has a portion of slightly layered white insta-rock surrounded by foamy material. As a bonus; just the tiniest natural hole. 

This impactite individual measures 42 mm x 28 mm x 14 mm and weighs 5.5 grams.

Wabar material from the famed meteorite impact in the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) in southern Saudi Arabia. Three craters have been documented though very little material has come out of this site, and now the craters are covered over by the ever-shifting sand dunes. These pieces came from a collection that has been in storage for about 20 years; an American working in Saudi Arabia for 30 years visited the craters 3 times in the 1990s, bringing back to the States some material. This is what remains of his collection.
