Large meteorite impact in the desert
Libyan desert glass or 'gold tektite' is a tektite found in the desert on the border of Egypt and Libya. The tectite was created around 28 million years ago by a very large meteorite impact. This released so much energy and heat that the desert sand was melted into glass.
Gold tektite with a history
Libyan glass is striking because of its yellow colour, but it can also have brown tones due to the different sand layers. It is the only tectite on earth with this striking yellow colour and is therefore also called 'gold tectite'. In the time of the Pharaohs, this tektite was already known and seen as a valuable gemstone. Even in the Neolithic period (11,000 to 3,000 BC) Libyan glass was used to make tools.
Effect of Libyan glass
Gold tektite offers protection against negative psychic energy. It is a powerful healer and indispensable in healings that use the energy of the solar plexus.
