Impact melt breccia

Impact melt rock containing lithic and mineral clasts displaying variable degrees of shock metamorphism in a crystalline or glassy matrix. Note: it has been recommended that this term should no longer be used as it is synonymous with a clast-rich impact melt rock (Stöffler and Grieve, 2007).
