    Are These Tektites?

    I found these in central Texas near Pearsall. I found pictures on the internet that have a similar shape and these appear to have gone thru some sort of molten event. There is a test using a blow torch but I thought it would be safer to risk a typing cramp than a 3rd degree burn. What do you think these are please?

    Tektites are more glassy. I believe these are iron nodules that naturally occurred during the formation of the rock strata.

    Thanks for your thoughts DanKung - I used my Rare Earth magnet of them and they are not magnetic. I agree that tektites are more glassy based on the internet images I have seen. I guess I should try the blow torch test to get more knowledge. Again thanks!

    No! Texas tektites (Bedasites) are black and glassy looking and you may be able to see through them. They look simular to Apachee Tears but not as dark.
