tektite look-a-like, obsidian-5
thin slice of obsidian pebble
Unlike tektites, this slice of the obsidian pebble shows flat layering and the color is
distinctly gray compared to a dark brown with greenish tint found in australites and
indochinites. There are also microscopic magnetite crystals present.
