TEKTITES are natural glass rocks with ridges and bubbles.
There are number of theories about the origin of tektites on Earth.
The most popular theory is terrestrial-impact theory which states that a large meteorite impact melts material from the Earth's surface and catapults it up to several hundred kilometers away from the impact site.
The molten material cools and solidifies to glass.
Some tektite researchers strongly disagree with this theory;
they suggest that tektites are more likely volcanic ejecta from the Moon.

Peridot is gem-quality olivine.
Olivine in general is a very abundant mineral, but gem quality peridot is rather rare.
Olivine has also been identified in meteorites and on the Moon and Mars.
Peridot is one of the few gemstones that occur in only one color: an olive green. The most valuable color is considered a dark-olive green. Peridot olivine is sometimes mistaken for emeralds and other green gems.
Peridot was used in antiquity in Egyptian Jewelry designs.
GREEN is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility.
Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Dark green is also commonly associated with money.
Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision.
