Product Description

Wabar Glass, Rare Impact Glass Saudi Arabia
Wabar Glass, The Empty Quarter, Saudi Arabia

This is as ultra-rare as it gets. Apart from Tunguska wood, exogenic fulgurites (see on this site) and only a few other things, Wabar Glass is very exotic! This specimen came from an old scientific collection.

What is Wabar Glass?

A large massive iron meteorite fell in the Rub'Al-Khali desert of Saudi Arabia about 6,000 years ago. It created 3 known craters and the sand which heated upon impact fused and created impactite which was strewn for hundreds of miles. Two forms of impactite were created from this impact: black glass and white sandstone fragments that mixed with the quartz-rich sand. The high temperatures also caused the white sandstone to bubble and froth, giving it a very unique appearance.
