How to use "Xenolith" in context?
Xenoliths are pieces of rock that were once part of extraterrestrial worlds. The term was first coined in 1905 by the Danish astronomer and geologist Ejnar Sverdrup. Xenoliths are pieces of other planets that have been blasted off and landed on Earth. Xenoliths can be found in many places across the world, including Canada, Mexico, Africa, and Turkey.
Xenoliths are unusual rocks because they contain evidence of the world they originated from. They often preserve the fingerprints of the planet they came from.
