“Orbital gem” identified as originally a fragment of solar panel.
Object was collected from low planetary orbit during space junk
“Orbital gem” is the local nomenclature for glass materials
‘weathered’ by physical contact with orbital debris. Akin to “sea
glass”, it is particular to inhabited planets with large quantities
of space junk. Not to be confused with naturally occurring and
induced gemstones in planetary orbit.
