IVORY COAST Tektite
Tektites are formed by the impact of large meteorites.
At the moment of impact a certain quantity of earth material turned into glass by the force of the impact can escape Earth gravity. Those fragments of Earth can reach Space momentarily before falling back to Earth, re-melted and reshaped.
The Ivory Coast Tektites are associated with the Bosumtwi crater in Ghana, both are over 1 million years old.
