Description

As found with desert sand in a cavity. Large translucent yellow/green specimen with cristobalite inclusions and weathered surface /dimples. Some geologists associate the glass with radiative melting from meteoric large aerial bursts, making it analogous to trinitite created from sand exposed to the thermal radiation of a nuclear explosion. Libyan Desert glass has been dated as having formed about 26 million years ago.
