Tektite's name comes from the Greek word 'tektos', which translates as 'melted', because the wonderful natural glass objects are formed when a meteorite hits the earth and uses its energies to melt the material there. For millennia, humans have used the tektites to make tools and accessories. Due to the primordial and powerful forces at work in the creation of the tektite, it is traditionally associated with important events such as an opening of consciousness and the realization of one's self. In popular belief, it is placed under the pillow as a good luck charm for a good night's sleep.
