DescriptionFACETED MOLDAVITE CRYSTAL M- 12.72 CARATS Arguably the most beautiful of all tektites, moldavite was formed nearly 15
million years ago by the asteroid impact that created the 14.5 mile wide
Nördlinger-Ries crater near Stuttgart. Portions of Earth's crust were-like Libyan
Desert Glass (see lots 99 and 124)-melted by the impact and ejected into the
upper atmosphere, where they cooled and returned to Earth, as a hard natural glass. This particular specimen was recently mined in the Czech Republic and faceted. 17 x 17 x 9mm (0.66 x 0.66 x 0.33 inches) and 2.542 grams or 12.72 carats.
