   LIBYAN DESERT GLASS

  Libyan Desert, Eqypt

   Large chunks of  natural glass were first

   found in the remote desert of Egypt in 1932.

   Evidence indicates that the glass was formed

   by a high velocity impact of a large body over

   28 million years ago. Lack of included mater-

   ial and some unusual properties of the glass

   leave many questions on the origin of this glass

   unanswered.

   Specimen size: approx.  4 cm  X  3.1 cm  X 

   2.3 cm  Weight: 28 grams
