This gorgeous octagon facet is an excellent example of authentic Moldavite in faceted form. It has swirling streaks of lechatelierite (a high-temperature form of SiO2) which only forms during high temperature, high velocity events such as a meteorite impact. There are also abundant gas bubble inclusions which formed at high altitude during Moldavite’s return to earth. This gem is ideal for setting into a custom ring or necklace.
