Charlevoix Shatter Cone Large Canada
This is a top-tier, superb shatter cone - on melt rock - with well-defined horse tailing! Its smooth, naturally polished surfaces sets this shatter cone apart from most other shatter cones ever found. Shatter cones have been found at this site that are both dark and light in color.
Other geological evidence for the Charlevoix Impact crater includes planar deformation features (PDFs) in quartz and feldspar grains. A stony asteroid probably created the Charlevoix Impact Structure.
Size of Charlevoix shatter cone: 130 mm L X 110mm W X 45mm D, Weight: 830 grams
Ships with Certificate of Authenticity, tag and tag stand. Photo cube and shatter cone acrylic stand not included.
