Agni Manitite, is an extremely rare tektite found mainly in Java, Indonesia. Its name is derived from the ancient Sanskrit term “agni mani”, meaning “pearl of the divine fire”. These tektites were formed when pieces a meteorite crash landed over 800,000 years ago. When these pieces hit the earth it super-heated the surface, liquidizing it into magma, fusing with earth and shooting back up into the atmosphere. Where these pieces rained down from the sky super cooling on the way.
The color ranges from a dark charcoal grey-black to a smoky translucent color. Most if not all of the pieces of Agni Manitite are now underwater. Authentic pieces of this tektite is incredibly hard to come by. Fake versions of this tektite are available in mass quantities, as it closely resembles raw obsidian.
