Caption: Rock from meteorite impact crater. This rock, which is known as Bunte (multicoloured) breccia, comes from the Nordlinger Ries impact crater in western Bavaria, Germany. The crater formed from an impact that took place some 14.4 million years ago. Breccia is an aggregate of rock fragments fused into a matrix. Because it formed from an impact, it is known as an impact breccia.
