Czech Moldavite Green Meteorite Tektite

Moldavites are around 14 million years old. The theory is that a meteorite compacted with earth in a gigantic explosion like atomic bombs going off and this fusion produced moldavite. THE STONE IS CONSIDERED LUCKY TO ITS OWNER AND BRINGS GOOD FORTUNE, so rumour states! Moldavite was found in Czechoslovakia, Europe. Moldavite is a rare, glassy, translucent, dark green gemstone. Moldavite is a silica-based tektite, a mineral formed when a meteorite (a rock from space) struck the Earth's surface and melted and fused the surrounding rock. Moldavite is only found in Bohemia (the Czech Republic) in the Ries Crater in the Moldau River valley (which it was named for). Moldavite was discovered in the late 1800's; the meteorite from which it formed hit the Earth about 14.7 million years ago. Moldavite has a Mohs hardness of 5.5-6.6. Inclusions of gas bubbles and iron/nickel spherules are common. This natural glass has been used for jewelry, religious articles, and decorative objects since prehistoric times. Moldavites are the rarest of gems, rarer even than diamonds, rubies or emeralds. Since their origin is due to an impact event, further discovery of new deposits seems very unlikely.
