One of the biggest impact structures known on earth was created. The rim to rim diameter of the Vredefort astrobleme is 160km. The impact affected earth surface has even a diameter of 300km.

This sphere is made from the impactite type impact-melt-breccia. Dark gray melt with shocked and unshocked granite and gneiss fragments.
