Libyan Gold Tektite, aka Libyan Desert Glass was formed by a meteorite impact and is is a type of natural glass caused by the enormous heat at the moment of impact. The Libyan desert glass has been dated as having formed about 26 million years ago. LDG's have a very high concentration of metallic compounds which are also found in chondrite meteorites. They also have high concentrations of platinum group elements and rare earth elements confirming the meteorite connection. LDG's generally contain more than 98% pure silica. Chemical analysis shows that the glass is locally enriched with chondritic meteoritic elements.
