Glass meteorite, as its name implies, is a meteorite with similar shape to glass. It is a kind of quartz meteorite, which melts after entering the atmosphere and condenses rapidly after falling to the ground. It has black, dark green and brown colours. The surface layer has elongated bubbles and round bubbles of different sizes, and some of them resemble the circular mountain pattern on the surface of the moon. In ancient China, it was called Lei Gongmo.
The glass meteorite is dark green, glassy luster, irregular shape as a whole, with dark green and emerald lines in the interior, a small amount of milky white lines, dense bubbles throughout the body, and rhyolite outside, mysterious and magnificent. This meteorite weighs about 576.8g, is very rare and precious. The collection price of "glass meteorite" has risen all the way. It has become the most expensive stone and diamond in the antique collection market nowadays. It is a rare glass meteorite.
Because meteorite comes from the universe, it is still mysterious and rare in people's cognition. Its particularity and scarcity are the most potential for collection and appreciation. The value of meteorite collection is mainly determined by the extraterrestrial sources of meteorites, that is, the value of scientific research. The value of scientific research is high, and its market performance is good.
The glass meteorite is dark green, irregular in shape and smooth in fracture surface. It is formed at high altitude, high temperature, high pressure and high speed. It has obvious formation characteristics: high purity without impurities in the interior, melting shell on the exterior, rhyoid on the melting shell, and a large number of white particles (silicate spheres). The surface of the meteorite has a layer of dark green molten crust formed by burning and gas marks left by air friction. It also has a rhyoid or streamline structure.
Meteorites are precious because they are the oldest rocks. It plays an important role in the study of outer space. It can effectively provide early historical data and information of the planets outside the Earth, and glass meteorites can remain unchanged for billions of years. Researchers can learn more about the early universe by studying these meteorites, which is of great scientific value. All countries in the world attach great importance to meteorites. Some developed countries must contend for meteorites as important scientific research materials, forming the situation that glass meteorites are soaring nowadays, a real stone of gold.
The glass meteorite is a translucent vitreous body with weak magnetic properties and weighs 155.6g. The surface is dark green, with high purity and no impurities. The whole body is filled with dense small bubbles. There are melting shells on the outside, ripples on the melting shells, and gas marks on the outside and under the melting shells. The burning trace at high temperature is obvious, the melting state and sulfide are distinct, the molten crust is prominent and magnetic, which resembles the circular mountain pattern on the surface of the moon. Very precious, for the collection of fine goods.
It's impossible to drop pie from the sky, but it's possible to drop something as valuable as gold. That's meteorite that many people don't think of. Meteorite collections are attracting more and more attention from investors and collectors. On the one hand, the market value of meteorites has been exploited and speculated. On the other hand, driven by the flourishing collection, meteorites have also been concerned as a scarce resource.
The glass meteorite is dark green and irregular in shape. The surface of the meteorite is covered with round bubbles of different sizes. There are many small craters left by the bursting of bubbles on the surface of the meteorite impacting the atmospheric glass. The collection has a good appearance and obvious characteristics. Clear white chondrite material, through-body air print and through-body air print can be seen on the local section. The melting pit is typical. Molten crust is shining in the sunshine, and the plane is smooth and shiny. At present, it is relatively rare on the market, and its collection value and research are very high.
As early as more than 1,000 years ago, there was a record of glass meteorites in the book Ling Biao Lu Yi written by Liu Hui of the Tang Dynasty in China: "After the thunderstorm in Leizhou, people got stones in the wild, which is called Leigong Mo. Harmony is bright and lovely." According to Darwin, a British biologist, in 1844, a button-shaped glass block was obtained in Australia, which was considered Obsidian (Darwin glass). Later, similar glass blocks were found worldwide, commonly known as "glass meteorites". Glass meteorite, because of its tough texture, can be carved into hand ornaments and chest ornaments, which are very expensive in the jewelry market.
According to the records of American extraterrestrial objects, about 500 meteorites crash into the earth every year, but only 20 meteorites can be found. Only a small portion of them are glass meteorites. There are no more than 40,000 glass meteorites in the world, and rare glass meteorites are extremely rare. Generally, they have been searched and removed by developed countries. In order to study outer space, some of them are exhibited in national museums, and few of them have been successfully collected by large collectors.
