I haven't ever bothered to do a specific gravity test but there is a large bubble taking up at least 30% of the interior of this very symmetrical, slightly flattened sphere. When it is placed on a flat surface, it actually rolls over to rest on the solid "end".

Hey Phil, is this bubble open or closed? Thanks for sharing this symmetrical beauty!

Symmetry in nature, whether by design or accidental, is such a pleasing sight. Thanks, Phil, a beauty!

Hi Phil, Impressive tektite for sure, almost looking like a pock marked miniature meteoroid or planet. Thanks for sharing!
