Libyan Desert Glass: The Yellow Tektite Sister of Moldavite
5g-5.4 comes with Display Case.
Moldavite is a well known Tektite from the Czech Republic. Moldavia's glowing green color and extraterrestrial-inspired origin is alluring.
But what about her lesser-known older sister, Libyan Desert Glass? This stunning yellow Tektite also goes by the name Great Sand Sea Glass, and she is truly as great as her famous sister Moldavite.
What is Libyan Desert Glass?
Libyan Desert Glass is the exotic sister of Moldavite, found south of the Mediterranean sea in Egypt. It is a Tektite Meteorite boasting a gorgeous golden yellow color and rich energy. Just like Moldavite, it is glassy and translucent. Some pieces hold sand within them, encasing tiny pebbles of the Sahara desert for ages to come
Is Libyan Desert Glass Rare?
Yes, Libyan Desert Glass is very rare. It was created during a Meteorite occurrence that took place 29 million years ago. It was a historic event that can never be replicated in the exact same way.
The area where the Golden Tektite is found is uninhabitable Sahara desert land. That makes it hard to excavate. Since the region is politically unstable, it is even more difficult for Meteorite hunters to search the area. Rumor has it that the Egyptian government has halted the hunt and export of Libyan Desert Glass. These several obstacles make it even more rare. We recommend you get your piece now.
