A phenomenal and large impactite featuring the most intriguing black splash material exterior over a nicely layered white insta-rock interior. The black exterior has a rough, almost ropey appearance and is sporadic, covering only portions of the insta-rock in places, though heavy in others. One of the best specimens from the collection! Love this one.
This impactite individual measures 45 mm x 43 mm x 28 mm and weighs 32.5 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.
