Abstract

Oxygen isotope analyses were obtained for six Ivory Coast tektites, two samples of Bosumtwi Crater glass, and two new moldavites. The Ivory Coast tektites are 2 to 5 per mil richer in oxygen-18 than other known tektites, and they are similar in oxygen-18 content to the impactite glass from the nearby Bosumtwi Crater. These data are compatible with a terrestrial origin for the Ivory Coast tektites.
