Here is a fine and reasonably large size Impactite , locally know as “Darwin glass”. From Mt Darwin, Western Tasmania. The specimen weights a very decent 25gms!! This material is sometimes called Darwinite.. A fascinating thing about this Darwin glass event, is that scientists, have calculated the size of the impact, but surprisingly and unexplained is the fact that there is double the amount of glass produced than the impact should have produced! This area is now in a National Park and is therefor off limits for collection. Ex Christo Lees collection. Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
