Geographic Variations in Concentration of Mineral Inclusions in Muong Nong-type Australasian Tektites: Implications Regarding the Location of the Australasian Tektite Source Crater
Mineral inclusions (primarily zircon and an Al2SiO5 phase) were found in 19 of 32 layered Australasian tektites. The highest concentrations are in samples from Muong Phin, Laos. Our prelimary data are consistent with a source crater in southern Laos or adjacent area.
