Glass meteorite, full name glass meteorite. Glass meteorite is a kind of natural glass which condenses rapidly after the surface target material melts when the extraterrestrial objects impact the earth violently. Most of the glass meteorites found on the earth's surface are massive, brown black to light green, generally cm in size, with aerodynamic erosion marks on the surface. It has been proved by long-term research that the glass meteorite is different from the earth's volcanic glass in chemical and structural characteristics and is not the product of geological process. This meteorite was found in Baiyin xiangshuihe, Gansu Province
Glass meteorites, known as "tianwaishi", are rare and precious, and some people like to collect them. In recent years, a wave of glass meteorite collection has gradually emerged in China.
