Positron lifetime spectra as well as one-dimensional angular distributions of photons coming from the two-photon annihilation of an electron-positron pair were measured at room temperature for samples of natural tektite and hyalite. The data were used for estimation of positronium characteristics in the specimens. The characteristics were analysed in terms of parameters of pores trapping the positronium atoms before their decay. In the analysis two models of the traps were taken into account, i.e. the square potential wells of spherical symmetry with barriers of finite and infinite heights. It was found that the linear dimensions of the pores resulting from these two-trap models are almost the same and they are of the order of 1 nm.
