The occurrence in Tasmania of these singular spheroids of jet black obsidian, popularly known as "buttons," was brought under the notice of the Royal Society in 1897, by Messrs. Twelvetrees and Petterd, who gave a very full description of the specimens which had come under their observation, and discussed the various theories which have been put forward to account for their origin and distribution.
