There are three main types of damage. Bulls Eye – this is marked by a separated cone in the outer layer of glass that results in a dark circle with an impact point. Star Break – this exhibits a series of short cracks or legs that emanate from the impact point. Combination Break – this has damage characteristics similar to both a bulls eye and a star break.
