Quick Reference

A tektite from the largest strewn field of tektites in the world, which covers the whole of southern Australia, including Tasmania. Estimates of the ablation age of australites are in the range 600 000–750 000 years. The 1-km Mount Darwin crater in western Tasmania has a similar age (730 000 years), but it seems too small to be their source.
