Moldavite is the only Tektite with a translucent luminous green color. Tektites are a rare natural impactite glass that forms during a meteorite impact. Moldavite formed 14.5 million years ago when a meteorite impacted Earth, creating the 15 mile wide Ries Crater in Germany, the explosive impact blasted this green impactite glass 200-400 kilometers away, into Czech Republic.
Moldavite is unearthed and collected from sandy sedimentary deposits, specimens can often have slight nicks. All of our Moldavite is hand-selected by us in person for best quality with minimal damage. Most of our Moldavite is direct from our Czech suppliers.
