Australite Flanged Buttons Found In Tucson!
Well... found in Kitty and Marvin's (Southwest Meteorite Laboratory) room at Tucson that is! Mark Bostick had commented on these specimens in his Tucson 2003 Show Report article in last month's Meteorite-Times Links so I thought I'd show them to all of you this month. My wife only collects one Tektite, and Buttons happen to be the one.
Pristine Un-weathered Condition
Wonderful Sharp Detailed Ring waves
Transparent Flange On Smaller Specimen
