Moldavite - 3×2.5×2.3 cm - 14.1 g

Moldavite - 3×2.5×2.3 cm - 14.1 g
South Bohemian Region, Czech Republic

A beautiful and heavy, translucent and rounded moldavite of good quality, color and gemminess.

More rare than diamonds and is only going up in value every year!
Moldavite is a tektite, which formed (in brief sense) when an asteroid hit the earth, melted it, and then the unique melded combination of the two dropped back down essentially as molten globs of glass that cooled into these surreal shapes. Moldavites are gemmy tektites that come only from the Czech Republic.
