Differences between impactites and slag


Recommended Posts

I see a lot of posts with pictures of meteorite hopefuls that only end up to be deemed as slag, but when I look at pictures of impactites, they appear very similar. What do you look for and how can you tell difference?

Here are a couple pictures of a piece I found in SW Wisconsin as a reference and compare to Henbury Impactites (picture with dime)
