Tektites are small, pebble-like glassy objects of Earth material that have been melted by meteorite impact, splashed up into our atmosphere, and fallen to Earth again under gravity. They often acquire aerodynamic shapes when they partially melt on their return journey. They are usually of a black, green, brown or grey colour. The term was coined by Austrian geologist Franz Eduard Suess, son of Eduard Suess.
