Tektites are rather fascinating. They get their volcanic look from the molten rock that falls off a meteorite on impact. They only happen when the impact is sufficient enough to make a crater of 10km or more and the force with which they're thrown can be enough for them to leave the atmosphere, just in case you wanted a meteor impact put into perspective! This such example is at auction from Catawiki later today.
