The moldavite on this 28 carat specimen is gem quality, and it features deep channels and furrows separated by smooth ridges which break up into gnarled, bark-like formations. The color is a deep, translucent green which glows from within when held up to the light. This is an excellent example of this now- scarce form of glassy tektite, the result of a meteorite impact in Germany some 15 million years ago that scattered molten glass pieces all the way into the Cxech Republic.
