Siljan Impact Crater Shatter Cone - Sweden
The Siljan impact crater was formed during Devonian times and is impressively the largest impact crater, to date, found in Europe. This dynamic shatter cone is from the Siljan impact crater and shows distinctive features of both good color and horse tailing.
Shatter cones are typical rocks found at an impact site. They are not found in any other geological scenarios. Dynamic forces come into play when an asteroid, meteorite or comet impacts the Earth. The shock wave force of the event leaves its signature behind in form of these horse tail and often conical pattern formations in the rock.
