Unique Qualities
This European crafted 925 sterling silver necklace joins a 3 carat rosecut Moldavite gem with a half-polished 49 carat Libyan Desert Glass Tektite. The Moldavite is faceted using Arkadia’s special technique of leaving the back of the stone unpolished, allowing the unique raw texture of Moldavite to shine through the face of the gem. The huge Libyan Tektite has a glowing gold color tone and natural inclusions of gas bubbles and swirling patterns of Lechatelierite that formed during its molten journey to earth. The beautiful flow forms and fluvial structure of Lechatelierite is found in virtually all Moldavites and Libyan Desert Glass. It gives Tektites their unique internal structure and is one of the main ways we can identify genuine Tektites from fakes. The necklace chain is a linked chain with an adjustable 16” to 18” lobster claw closure.

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.

Libyan Desert Glass Properties

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.
