Product Description

Nördlinger Ries Impact Crater Flädle Germany XL
This is possibly the best Flädle you could ever purchase for your impact collection. Museum grade, X- large with dynamic shape and form.

Nördlinger Ries Crater "Flädle" impact glass was created from the impact that struck what is now Germany, during the mid-Miocene. "Flädle" comes from the German word for flatbread. This material was heated, ejected and cooled - all while being flung up into the atmosphere, and raining to the ground. It was stretched and reformed as it plunged to Earth. Flädle is a very special feature of suevite. It is essentially a “glass bomb” composed of primarily completely melted crystalline basement rock.

Of all the geological impact material "Flädle" is definitely among the most distinctive. This specimen has superb twisting and turns, which makes it a visually engaging geological impact bomb specimen.

"Flädle" size: 7 3/4" H X 5 1/2" W X 4" D, Weight: 3.5 lb

Ships with tag, tag stand, "Flädle" stand, Certificate of Authenticity, and information. Plastic display stand supporting the Flädle included.

Here is a chance to own one of Earth's most dynamic geological impact wonders.
