The word Tektite comes from the Greek word, tektos, or molten. Tektites are natural glass rocks of varrying size, which most scientists argue were formed by the impact of large meteorites on Earth’s surface. Tektites are typically black or olive-green, and their shape varies from rounded to irregular. Tektites are among the "driest" rocks, which suggests that they were formed under phenomenal temperature and pressure not normally found on the surface of the Earth. The terrestrial-impact theory states that a meteorite impact melts material from the Earth's surface and catapults it up to several hundred kilometers away from the impact site, which means that it must have travelled through space (thus explaining the dryness). The molten material cools and solidifies to glass. According to this theory, a meteorite impact causes their formation, but the material of tektites is primarily terrestrial in origin. They are only found in four strewnfields, three of which are associated with known impact craters. The ages of tektites from the four strewnfields have been determined using radiometric dating methods. The age of moldavites, a type of tektite found in Czech Republic, was determined to be 14 million years.
