Breccia is the Latin word for broken. These formations are common on Earth as breccias can form through many different geological processes such as tectonic, volcanic, and sedimentary activity. This particular breccia, known as Impact Melt, is unique due to its composition. It consists of crystallized melted rock fragments created through a cataclysmic impact event. This space impact liquified two separate astral bodies, allowing them to combine into a single body and fall to Earth.
