This is a gorgeous little piece of Moldavite - the strangest and most beautiful form of Tektite.
Moldavite is only found in one place on Earth - the Moldovan region in the former Czechoslovakia - Eastern Europe.
While no-one knows for sure, it is thought that the 'splashfield' that led to the creation of moldavite was created by a meteorite impact in Germany.
The beauty of Moldavite that sets it apart from the majority of tektites is the colour.
Nearly all tektites you will ever see are a solid, unchanging black, whereas moldavite is a stunning rich green.
It is normally found as small specimens of between 1 and 5 grams and they can sometimes have the most incredibly detailed splashing effect on the surface.
They can look just like raindrops that have frozen upon impact with the ground.
I have managed to find a few choice specimens of Moldavite for you.
These aren't the largest or highest grade shapes, but there are a lot of fakes on offer. I can guarantee this is genuine.
You will receive this exact specimen
Weighing 0.541 Grams
