Bulk Tektites




These are packaged with schools and other groups particularly in mind. They are mostly not display quality, but just good average Indochinite tektite specimens. I've shown several approximate sizes, and can likely custom select other sizes if you have something specific you need. The sizes and counts/kg are approximate. There will be a range. Some pieces will show glassy chips. I have been through all of this material personally and have eliminated all or nearly all of the tektite imposters (coal, clinkers, tourmaline,plastic, black rocks, etc.) Most of it has been rinsed, but not scrubbed. Sold only in kilo or multi-kilo quantities.


We have not been able to purchase bulk material for several years now. The Chinese supply is exhausted and I have not found a current exporter for Thai. When this material is gone, there will likely be no more.

Here's what we have on hand as of 8/23/2017

ave. 17.9 gm, N = 56, $60/kg, one + kg available
