Tektites are ideal meditative tools, helping one to expand the consciousness into the highest frequencies. They have an empowering effect on people and can help to increase synchronicities and connections. Tektites have an invigorating effect on the aura, allowing it to expand and ‘throw off’ energetic debris, leading to a more responsive, free-flowing energetic body. Tektite History and Uses: The name Tektite comes from the Greek word “tektos” meaning molten. They are found in shades of black, green or grey and are 14 million years old. They are regarded as talismans of luck in many cultures and have been used to accelerate healing from illness and injuries. Tektite Geological Description: Australian tektites Australian tektites (Australites) have been known and used as artefacts and ritual objects by Aboriginal Australians for over 30,000 years. The earliest record of scientific study of Australian tektites is a Darling Downs, Queensland specimen given to Charles Darwin in 1836, when he visited Sydney on board the Beagle. Emus have been known to swallow Australites for gizzard stones which help grind up their food. Tektite Crystal Healing Properties: Tektites are glass objects associated with meteoric impacts. Their crystal system is amorphous and they have a hardness of 5.5 to 6.5. They are rich in silicon dioxide. There is debate as to whether Tektites were themselves meteorites, terrestrial rocks melted by meteorite impact, or some fusion of terrestrial and extraterrestrial material. Tektites have been found in Australia, North America, Africa, China and Southeast Asia. Affirmation: I choose to increase the light in my aura, and to commune with helpful beings on the higher planes. How old are tektites? Tektites are geologically young, with a range of about 300,000 years to 35 million years. Many Australites are 610,000 to 750,000 years old. The North American tektites have been dated at 34.5 million years, and the Libyan Desert glass at 28 million years. The Bohemian and Moravian sites are dated at 14.7 million years, Aouelloul Crater at 3 million years and Ivory Coast tektites at about 1 million years. Composition and properties Tektites are made of opaque to translucent, green, brown, grey, yellow-grey or black glass. Moldavites are typically green, while Australites are usually black or dark brown. Their chemical compositions are similar to both granite and impure sandstone (greywacke) or soils of these compositions, being high in silica (68-82%) with 10-14% alumina and lesser iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium and titanium. These components did not have time to combine and form crystals, but cooled quickly to form a glass. Tektites do not contain any water. They can be mistaken for obsidian or pitchstone (black volcanic glasses), but these will emit some water on strong heating. With a hardness of 6-7 on Moh's scale, tektites will easily scratch window glass. They have a density range of 2.2 (Libyan glass) to 2.8 (Moldavites), but are usually 2.4 to 2.5 grams per cubic centimetre. This is a little lighter than quartz beach sand. Human built objects can be mistaken for tektites, particularly molten bottle glass, glass marbles, and black buttons. Many of these will not have the correctly-shaped rims, symmetrical structures or colours of real tektites, while others will be too heavy or too light.
