Here is an intriguing and beautiful moldavite specimen that features the furrowed surface formations that are one of the most fascinating characteristics of this material. The color is a rich, translucent green, which shows off particularly well when the piece is backlit. 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 sent molten glass spinning into the air where it cooled and landed in Bohemia.
