Unique Qualities
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. 

Moldavite was formed during a celestial event some 15 million years ago. A huge astroid estimated to be around 1 km in diameter struck southern Germany and formed what is today known as Ries Crater. Moldavite is known as the stone of transformation, a catalyst to inspire positive change and elevate one’s consciousness.
