IMPACTITES

Impactites include impact glasses, tektites, impact breccias, and shatter cones, and are terrestrial rocks that have been altered or created by the heat and pressure of a meteorite impact. Impactites are sometimes all that remains of ancient meteoritic events from which the meteorites themselves — and sometimes even the crater — have disappeared.
