Features that make a tektite desirable or collectable

Like any other collectible, the smallest details are often what distinguish a good specimen from a great one and a great one from   what some might call “museum class”. For some tektites, uncommon surface sculpture are what make them desirable. Tektites from Texas, Georgia, Belize, Ivory Coast, Moravia and Germany are all desirable because they are few in number. Color and surface sculpture are factors in all moldavite values. Australites with complete intact flanges (buttons) or even a complete detached flange are also very collectible and the most desired of all tektites.
