Moldavite Tectita XXL Extraordinary Form !! - 17 g

Moldavite Tectita XXL Extraordinary Form !! - 17 g
Chlum, Czech Republic

Moldavite from the Czech Republic.

You can see bubbles inside which encloses gas, which is very useful at the scientific level to analyse and understand how Tektites are formed

Moldavites are the result of the fusion and crystallisation of terrestrial material due to the high temperatures and pressures that are sometimes generated in the impact of a large meteorite on the Earth's surface.

They are becoming scarcer, particularly those of a considerable size as the ones offered in this lot. If it is already difficult to find a meteorite, a tektite is much harder to find because this phenomenon does not always happen

 At Expometeoritos, we take care of the dissemination, talks, workshops, analysis, classification and exhibitions of Meteorites.

We are members of:
.- IMCA (International Meteorites Collectors Association) #8187
.- Meteoritical Society
.- American Meteor Society

All our pieces are certified and we also deliver the analysis of the chemical composition if the value of the piece exceeds € 300, carried out in our facilities by X-ray Spectrography.
