Meteors are cosmic companions of the planets in the Solar System that are nudged by gravitational tides to fall free from their orbits and plummet towards stars or planets.
The meteor that formed this meteorite glass, known as the mineral, Tektite, hit the earth around 26 million years ago. The crater has never been found as it is buried underneath desert sands in North Africa, but by owning this coin you can hold rare pieces of that enormous explosion in your hands.
