Moldavite was created about 14.2 million years ago by 2 meteorite impacts. It is almost certain that the Nördinger Ries and the Steinheimkater in Germany are the remains of this.
High Pressure Molded
The high impact speed of 20 kilometers per second released an enormous amount of energy, comparable to 1.8 million times that of the atomic bomb that fell on Hirochima. Earthly rock and sand in combination with the meteorite was melted down into glass. This glass was spread over a huge distance by the force of the impact. These 'glass drops' are also called tektites. Moldavite is the only tektite in the world with a beautiful green color and makes it unique in its kind! These pieces were found in: Chlum nad Malsi, Bohemia, Czech Republic.
Without damage to nature
These pieces have been legally won and sold. This does not damage nature! The extraction of moldavite takes place under licenses of the Czech government. Read more about this and also about the illegal extraction of moldavite in our travel report: The dark trade in moldavite
