This 15+ gram Investor Grade Moldavite™ - roughly three times the average size - has a most lucid green color, very rarely do you find such brilliance in this Tektite. A beautifully uniform, watery-like texture etches this alien stone, the only gem of extraterrestrial origin and the only meteoritic rock of semi-precious quality.
It is popularly thought that when the unknown agent from outer space that created Moldavite first impacted, it caused a massive superheated plasma flash which ionized atoms, reforming them in a highly-unique way. The resulting material condensed into liquid-like drops which were launched back skyward before raining down in strewn fields over the area now known as Bohemia in the south of Czechia.
Scientific research indicates that the alien substance crashed into the Earth somewhere between twelve and fifteen million years ago. Researchers have purported the object's weight at roughly 500 million tons with a diameter of over half a mile (one kilometer). At the calculated velocity of 90,000 km/h (55,000+ mph) this object would have crashed into our beloved planet's surface with a force the strength of thousands of nuclear bombs!
Both alien and mysterious, this specimen is about to making another landing in the hands of a special caretaker after biding its time for millions of years underground!
