Moldavite is a forest green, olive green or blue green vitreous silica projectile rock. Only found in one area of the world in the Czech Republic. The meaning of the name Moldavite relates to the Moldau River in Czechoslovakia.
A meteorite of enormous size is known to have crashed into the Czechoslovakian mountain region about 15 million years ago. It's impact is said to have had more power than an atomic explosion.
This amazing stone was created by the heat of an incredible impact that had extraordinary force. It's aero-dynamic shape suggests that in all likelihood this attractive green stone feel from the heavens.
These crystals were found close to the area where the impact occurred. This event is believed to have produced melted material that fell to earth and created these beautiful green crystals we now call Moldavite.
