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.
The specimen offered in this auction is a wonderfully shaped moldavite that can be enjoyed with light on the back or naturally. It has a perfect sculptural shape without any broken part (no chips).
