Indochinite tektites are black melted pieces of stone and sand that form at a meteorite impact.

Impact Glass is a mix of Earthly and extraterrestrial material

The tremendous heat of a meteorite impact melts a mix of terrestrial and earthy sand and rock into glass. The force of impact ensures that the molten glass is thrown over a vast distance. After a meteorite impact it rains glass drops in the far and wide area. At these black tektites the teardrop shape of the devastating "glass rain" is easy to distinguish
