An extraordinary surreal Hongshan Shui Jing Glass piece
Close-up showing putative ‘ground melt’ encased in the glass
The same piece after a catastrophic impact - just the four main pieces: makes me want to cry!
Glass fragment with some of the non-glass ‘melt’
Maybe good can come of it by mineral analysis and TL testing of the white encased material. Is this the secret to dating the glass and so the meteorite impact?
I hope I can therefore turn a catastrophe into a scientific experiment. Any contacts who might help would be welcomed! I shall try and find time today to take some more pictures of other bits of encased extraneous non-glass melt.
Thank you Dr Trog, for the Noddy account, suitable for a post'geriatric such as myself! Looks like I have succeeded at last.
