Description

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. Although the event occurred in Germany, most specimens are found in Czech Republic due to the trajectory of the impact.

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

Certificate of authenticity included. IMCA 5591.
