This sample of Onaping Fall-back Breccia
is from the huge Sudbury impact structure,
an ancient 62km crater in Ontario, Canada.
Also from the Sudbury impact structure,
Anthraxolite is an intriguing carbonaceous
material, widely considered to derive from
the body that created the second largest
crater so far discovered on Earth.
This is a 'fladle' or pancake stone from
the Ries Crater. It is a flattened chunk of
impact melt glass, ejected during the
meteoric impact. Available in several sizes
up to around 15cm. Super items!
These 50g shatter cones come from the
Ries Crater. They display quite beautifully
the 'horsetail' patterns created by the
enormous impact that formed the crater.

An intriguing gift for geologists, meteorite
collectors or palaeontologists! Our pieces
of the K-T boundary layer were obtained
for us from the Red Deer River, Alberta and
are available in various sizes. A real talking
point, and very hard to obtain!
Suevite fallback breccia from the Ries Crater.
The impact disrupted local Jurassic limestones,
creatingshatter cones and breccias. Our samples
have been polished on one surface to display the
dark, glassy inclusions.
Probably unique to Spacerocks! We offer
this set of nine different
KT Boundary layer
samples, each fully labelled in a padded
acrylic case and presented in a hand-made
glazed wooden box. The specimens have
been collected for us on both sides of the
Atlantic Ocean.
