Moldavite Specimens (Meteorite Glass / Impact Glass)
Lovely Moldavite specimens, a heavily included type of ‘glass’ caused by the impact of meteorites on soil, mud, etc. Moldavite pieces are green, and are found in parts of Europe – typically around Germany and the Czech Republic.
We sell these pieces by weight – the same way we buy them. The piece pictured is the exact piece you will receive.
Our current stock includes:
- #2 – 1.3 grams
- #3 – 12x7x5MM – 0.33 grams
The soil or other material is catapulted into the atmosphere, and upon falling, gains a ‘glassy’ outer surface with bubbles and other signs of intense heat.
There are other types of Tektite – the more common ‘black Tektite’ and the yellow coloured Libyan Desert Glass.
For more information about Tektites, please feel free to check out our main Tektite page.
