This splendid has an aerodynamic shape and amazing spiky texture 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 stone resembles the Moldavites famously found in Besednice, with a spiky deeply defined texture that has been nicknamed hedgehogs. A fortunate caretaker will be able to keep this stone for many years to come!
Moldavite is a truly Cosmic Gem. ~12 million years ago an unknown agent of extraterrestrial origin created a celestial event on Earth. The result is a translucent green gem equally rare and mysterious. Sought after by collectors, healers, energy workers, enthusiats and lovers of the unique, Moldavite stones come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and textures which factor highly in their valuation. Each Arkadia Moldavite item is 100% genuine and comes with a free Certificate of Authenticity. Called the "Stone of Transformation", "Grail Stone" and possibly the inspiration for Kryptonite, Moldavite is soaring in popularity even as supply dwindles, and has quickly become a curious and attractive investment in both the physical and the metaphysical.
Tektites are meteorites, "stones" that have fallen to Earth from Space. They have come a long way to be on planet Earth. Moldavite is the Tektite we specialize in - the only one of gem quality.
