THE HEAVIEST TEKTITES

Written By Aubrey Whymark 2007-2017
This is a list of the largest (heaviest) tektites in the world. I have only included specimens for which there is proof. Rumors always abound of larger specimens, but they are often unsubstantiated. I'm sure there are some very large tektites that I still do not know about! If you have any information that can help then please email me at aubrey@tektites.info. Also I apologise, but I haven't sought full permissions for every photo on this page - I'm kind of assuming people will want to share their amazingly large specimens with the world! I'll take down any photos on request and also add any on request!
