This wonderful piece of raw collector's Moldavite has an aerodynamic drop shape that 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. The aforementioned drop shape could have been formed as a result of this raining down, and many Moldavites exhibit shapes such as these, although they are certainly not the most common and are highly prized as a result. A fortunate caretaker will be able to keep this stone for many years to come!
