This site is dedicated to providing you with scientifically accurate information about tektites.
  • If you want a quick overview of what tektites are then view my Quick Guide.
  • If you want to research tektites then there's plenty on this site to get you started and you can read more by referring to the extensive reference list, many of which are freely available online.
  • If you want help in identifying a possible tektite or you are not sure if something is genuine or fake then please refer to my Collecting Tektites page. 

This site replaces the sister site TEKTITES.CO.UK. I hope you enjoy visiting these pages.


Welcome to tektites.info

This site is currently being built and will eventually replace sister site

Please keep checking back. I hope to have this site reasonably completed by about October 2017.

Not 1, but 7 new Geochemistry pages have been added. Sometimes this can be hard reading, but geochemistry is extremely revealing and tells us a huge amount about tektites!
I am continually building this new site!
What's next?

All your favourite Museum pages are back up! No new data here, but photo quality has been enhanced on many pages!
Brand New! Whilst I wrote this at least 4 years back, this is the first time I have published this tektite classification system.
I hope to have this site complete by October 2017, but I have an exceedingly busy work and family schedule!

The analogues section is back up and running with some brand new and enhanced photo quality on some of the pages.
Private collection pages are up again! If you have a collection that you would like featured then please get in touch. I'm keen to expand this section as I know that some of the finest tektites are in private hands!
