Ries Impact Structure "Flädle" Germany
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. It was stretched and reformed as it plunged to Earth.
Of all the geological impact material "Flädle" is definitely among the most distinctive.
"Flädle" size: 6" H X 3 1/4" W X 1 5/8" D, Weight: 375 grams
Ships with tag, tag stand, "Flädle" stand, Certificate of Authenticity, and information about "Flädle."
This large sized "Flädle" leaves an indelible impression of how an impact can distort, spin, and stretch geological material under intense head and sudden speed. Fantastic, important addition to any important geological collection.
