Product Description

Impact Gray Ries Breccia for Sale

The Ries impact breccia is the result of large meteorite or asteroid impacts on Earth in the past. The rocks at the target site are melted, shattered, and mixed during the impact explosion. When the site finally settles and cools, a new composite rock - impact breccia - is the result. This is the grey variety of Ries Impact Breccia, the same material used in the construction of the old town church.

Sample is about 25 x 19 x 12mm and presented in a 2.25-inch hinged perky. All similar.
