Large Indochinite Tektite Doughnut Specimen
This 3.33 inch in diameter Large Indochinite Tektite Doughnut Specimen weighing 305 grams, or 10.8 ounces, is an unusual stone of metoritic origins, and comes from the Australasian region. This specimen exhibits one highly etched side, and one side with both etchings and bald spots. This formation is typical of Indochinite, and is probably related to the story of its formation.
Indochinite is a stone of protection and can be used to energize the root chakra, calm the mind, and connect with interstellar intelligences.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Indochinite Tektites
The name tektite is derived from the Greek word tēktos, meaning “melted,” or “molten.” These unique stones display aerodynamic shapes, ranging from teardrops to dumbbells, doughnuts and onions. They are relatively homogenous, and are similar to volcanic glass in this respect. Tektites are found in strewn fields around the world, but primarily in the Australasian, Central European, Ivory Coast, and North American regions.
The origin of tektites has been a subject of scientific controversy throughout the twentieth century. Some scientists believed they were of volcanic, Earthly origins, and others theorized that the stones originated on the moon, or from metorites.
Scientific consensus today is that meteorites impacted the surface of the Earth, and then the immense pressure and temperatures of the impact rendered the meteoritic material molten. This molten semi-liquid mass then bounced high into the air, to rain down upon the surface once again as Tektites, sometimes miles and miles from the impact zone. The precious stone moldavite is a good example of this type of tektite.
Indochinite tektite doughnuts have unique characteristics. Many tektites found in the Australasian region exhibit aerodynamic shapes such as onions, dumbbells and teardrops. It is theorized that doughnuts may have formed during the long journey from the upper regions of the Earth's atmosphere to the surface below. Possibly these tektites were rendered molten and semi-liquid as they hit the atmosphere, forming teardrops, but as they encountered denser regions of the atmosphere as they fell, they were flattened by the force of friction into the characteristic doughnut shape exhibited by the specimen on this page. The etchings on the doughnut are created by the stress of re-entry, and the bald spots may have been created upon impact, as some portions of the surface of the stone became brittle and fell away.
Indochinite's black coloration indicates an affinity with the root chakra, which is located at the perineum, at the base of the spine. The root chakra governs the well-being of the physical body, the activity of the adrenal glands, and more specifically, the proper functioning of the large intestine, bones, feet, legs and spine. Psychologically, the root chakra is connected to our survival instinct. Improperly energized or blocked root chakra flow can result in spaciness, boundary issues, paranoia, insecurity and hyperactivity. A well-energized root chakra keeps us well grounded and imparts a sense of mental calm, self-sufficiency, physical security and personal, physical well being. Root chakra stones, often red or black, have been used by shamanic healers and others for protection from detrimental ambient energies.
