Moldavite tektite. Meteorite impact glass - 5.7 g

Description
Moldavite tektite. Meteorite impact glass - 5.7 g
Crater in Germany, specimen in Czech Republic

Moldavite glasses formed 15 million years ago during the impact of a giant meteorite in present-day Nördlinger Ries. Splatters of rocks that were melted by the impact cooled and most fell in south Bohemia - traversed by Vltava river, in German: Moldau, hence its name. They are a type of tektite and impactite.

The specimen offered in this auction is a wonderfully shaped moldavite that can be enjoyed with light on the back or naturally.

Its shape is really attractive, it reminds that of a sea horse.
Weight: 5,7 grams.

Certificate of authenticity included. IMCA 5591.
