Mars Mineral Spectroscopy Database
Return to Mars Mineral Home | Contact | MHC Home


On terrestrial planets, glasses are formed when magmas cool quickly from a liquid state, or when lightning strikes or meteor impacts melt the rocks where they hit.

The photo to the left is representative of this mineral group; however, it is not the same sample on which spectra listed below were measured.
