Billitonite Indonesian Tektite Specimen for Profound Healing and Protection *Rare & Intuitively Selected*
Estimated delivery between and .
Billitonites are a Tektite that is super glossy and jet black in color. Tektires are glassy shards of space rock that were created when a meteor impacted Earth, by creating a blast that sent silica into the air and melting it to glass. You will receive an intuitively selected Billitonite of your size selection.
This Tektite is a rare find sourced from Belitung (Biliton) Island in Indonesia. Billionites rarely are brought to the collector's market for sale for a number of reasons, primarily due to a majority of material going to local jewelry shops for use in faceted jewelry or natural specimen set in gold. Other factors include rarity, high demand, difficult to source and lack of mining. Billitonites are a result of an asteroid impact from around 780,000 years ago in Indochina (possibly in the Bay of Tonkin). Billitonites are found in several areas in Indonesia and also identified in other countries like China, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Philippines, Malaysia, Australia and with microscopic tektites reaching as far out as Antarctica. They are locally referred to as “batu satam”, which roughly translates as “bile of the sand”.
Billitonites are deeply respected in Indonesia for their profound healing and protection properties. In Tanjung Pendant, Belitung Island’s largest city, there is a formal garden in the shape of a flower, with fountains, garlands with lights and 50 foot columns. At the center you'll find a truck sized, Billitonite carved into an egg on a platform. Billionites are said to purge illness from the body, prevent illness and provide protection. Billionites bring the body to a state of calm by promoting tranquility and peace.
They pair well with other tektites.
