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 billion 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. We also buy old stock, collectors specimens and old collections, which we first verify and authenticate.
