How can I identify impact coesite or stishovite? I have found a site I believe to be a meteor ipact site but I need help in identifying impact unique materials that will confirm the area as an impact site.

If its a large meteor impact site these minerals may be there with other strange minerals. I am not an expert in meteor impact sites but perhaps an expert in this field will see this and make a post.
