A light yellow Libyan desert glass with a velvety, wind-swept surface texture and inclusions of sand and Lechatelierite that enhance its natural beauty. Lechatelierite is a rare form of silica which is only formed at extremely high temperatures. Libyan Desert Glass is still relatively unknown and hard to procure. As a gemstone, it has a hardness similar to quartz, in the range of 6.5 - 7 Mohs. Because it is 95% silica and has good translucency, it can be cut and polished. Beautiful swirling patterns of Lechatelierite and inclusions of zirconia and cristobilite define its unique appearance and tell-tale cosmic origins.
