This splendid large Investor Grade Moldavite has an aerodynamic elongated shape which harks back to the time 12-15 million years ago when it dropped from the cosmos after a cosmic event of epic proportion. This event is thought by most to be the arrival of an extraterrestrial agent on Earth! The most widely accepted version is that a meteoroid entered our atmosphere and managed to stay intact until it struck what is now southern Bavaria, Germany, with such force that it exploded and pieces shot back up into the upper atmosphere and landed in modern day southern Bohemia, Czech Republic. This particular specimen is graded highly due to its overall desirable shape, gorgeous texture with lovely sculpting as well as its intense green color. It is also over twice the average size of Moldavites. A fortunate caretaker will be able to keep this stone for many years to come!
