A vial of sand from the Wabar crater site! It's amazing to think the wide variety of the Wabar impactites formed from this fine pale orange-ish sand. There are small pieces of black (shell/splash) and white (insta-rock) mixed in with the sand.
The vial measures 38 mm x 12 mm. The vial contains 1.0 grams of material.

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 some material. This is what remains of his collection.
