Are Irregular Clasts of Former Silicate Melt in the Carawine Dolomite (Late Archean, Western Australia) the Oldest Known Tektites on Earth?
Irregular clasts in the late Archean Carawine Dolomite have shapes and internal textures similar to Muong Nong-type tektites. This suggests they are the oldest tektites found to date and that textures in tektite glass can survive devitrification.
