Caption

Rock from meteorite impact crater. This rock, which consists of a mineral called suevite, 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. The suevite mineral is a breccia, an aggregate of rock fragments fused into a matrix. Because it formed from an impact, it is known as an impact breccia. This sample size is 11.3 by 8 centimetres.
