To quote *Meluxine
Tektite is a form of of natural glass that forms due to the impact of large meteorites on the surface of the Earth. The heat from the meteorite melts the silicate grains in the soil forming a glass material. It is often black and shiny in appearance.
Most scientists believe that the model *Meluxine
was also formed by meteoritic impact. While isotopic analysis reveals that her body was formed through a similar process to that of tektite, her black shiny appearance is most likely due to latex contamination from Matt Bylett, an unidentified specimen thought to originate from a neighbouring crater.
was first discovered by =mastertouch
when he stubbed his toe on a hard but rubbery object whilst on a brisk afternoon walk through a meteorite crater in Russia. Although traces of latex have been found in the area, the hypothesised specimen ~MattBylett
is no where to be seen.
