Unique Qualities

An organically shaped Libyan desert glass with curving undulations and a light gold color. The use of Libyan Desert Glass tektites  dates back many millennia, with Paleolithic tools like knife blades and spear tips found in abundance throughout the Saharan Desert. According to some estimates, around 10% of specimens found show signs of being worked by prehistoric humans.The most famous relic discovered is a scarab carved in Libyan glass set in an elaborate breastplate found in Tutankhamen's tomb. Clearly, this stone was treasured above all others since it was used as the centerpiece for such an important relic. Ancient Egyptians called this stone “rock of the God”.

Libyan Desert Glass Tektite is one of only two gem-grade Tektites on the planet. Libyan Desert Glass has colors like that of its sandy source material of nearly pure silica, ranging from light yellow to deep golden color tones. 

Libyan Desert Tektite embodies the golden rays of the sun.
