Zhamanshinites were formed together with Irgizites when a giant asteroid fell in Kazakhstan about 900,000 years ago. Speculation is that Irgizites flew from the very core at the collision couple of 100m in the air at a high angle and fell in the form of small droplets, while Zamanshinites were supposed to fly at a low angle and cooled on the ground. There are also some differences in chemical composition between the two, but because the Zhamanshinites are more significant, they are stronger than the Irgizites.
Zhamanshinites are fascinating Star Stones with unique morphology. Higher quality specimens have a smooth gloss surface and a high light reflection glow with high brightness whenever exposed to the light. In this Star Stone, the LIGHT is much more concentrated than in other Tektites. You can hardly see the color through the thin layer of Zhamanshinite. It works similarly to Indochinites, but its presence is much more sensitive to the individual and the environment (due to strongly concentrated LIGHT). It gives you indescribable security in the most difficult moments or situations and makes you intensely aware of what is right and good. You quickly leave the duality and feel the UNITY of Life, as one big connected family of all living beings on our planet and in the entire universe. It helps you very successfully with emotional, mental, and other health problems. I recommend it to anyone who is lonely or in fear of the future, as it gives you courage and a sense of security, from which all fear, of any kind or form, disappears.
Zhamanshinites are located in a remote and sparsely populated southwestern region of Kazakhstan, in Aktobe province near the village of Irgiz. The asteroid fell about 900,000 years ago and created a 2km deep Zhamanshin crater (inner circle diameter 7km, outer circle diameter 14km). Like Darwin's Tektites and Irgizites, the Zhamanshinites can be found on the crater outskirts. On our expedition in Kazakhstan, we mostly found small specimens, but fortunately, also some larger ones. Unfortunately, they are rare, and it is very difficult to find clean-quality specimens.
