Tektite

$15.00

Tektite is not really a gemstone—it's a form of natural glass, much like obsidian, caused by heat. Rather than the heat being from volcanos, however, the heat that makes tektite comes from atmospheric friction. Meteorites enter the planet's atmosphere and are pulled down by gravity—the friction caused by moving through the atmosphere at hundreds of miles per hour builds up heat in the meteorite. When the meteorite impacts, it spends that heat energy (and usually itself) into the local rocks. This causes the rocks to melt with the remains of the meteorite, creating tektites. Tektites are believed to strengthen the aura and raise vibrations, also used for wisdom and knowledge. They are believed to enhance the integration of higher energies received from other realms, among other benefits. Each stone has its own individual qualities, flaws, perfections, and imperfections.
