Given that these alleged "tektites" look like
water-rolled pieces of basaltic scoria and the
Columbia Plateau is composed of basaltic volcanic
rocks, I would be extremely skeptical of these
so-called "tektites". I would certainly request a
written money back guarantee of their authenticity
and documented authentication in writing of their
identity before even considering their purchase.
