Wabar Impactite For Sale

The impactite glass material from Wabar is bubbly and almost universally a mix of glass, instant rock fragments, and particles of iron meteorite. Some pieces of the impactite glass show red discoloration from the oxidation of the meteorite iron contained within them. The better vitrified black glass droplets have long been treasured items called Wabar Pearls. They have a strong similarity in appearance to well-vitrified glass droplets from other craters. However, the ones from Wabar will usually have fragments of the instant rock inside them which shows on broken surfaces.

Wabar crater samples are quite rare compared to similar material from other impact crater locations. The crater site is remote and permission for access is no longer easy to obtain. Wabar crater material has never been abundant. We have a nice sampling of the varieties of impactite and rock from the Wabar craters for sale.
