Moldavite Tektite, Beautiful Green Meteorite Impact Glass, Micromount


NOTE : I am currently out of stock on Moldavite. Current market prices make it challenging for me to acquire a good wholesale price on this material, so it may be a while before I am able to offer any more.

Moldavite is a beautiful green translucent glass that originates from deposits in the Czech Republic that are associated with the nearby Ries Crater impact structure in Germany. Moldavite was created when a giant meteorite slammed into the Earth and the catastrophic impact fused local minerals (and some of the meteorite) into a green, gemmy material. Over the centuries, moldavite has been prized for it's beauty in jewelry making. The highest quality moldavite is cut into faceted gemstones. This moldavite is high quality, but not gem grade. It comes in irregular-shaped pieces that have a deep green color and nice translucency. 

Refer to the photo. The black centimeter scale cube is shown for scale and is not included. You are purchasing a single small piece of moldavite like the one shown. Note, each specimen is unique, so the appearance may vary, but it will be of comparable size and color. Your purchase will include a labeled gemjar for safe storage
