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 impact.
Shaped under high pressure
Due to the high impact speed of 20 kilometres per second, an enormous amount of energy was released, comparable to 1.8 million times that of the atomic bomb that fell on Hirochima. Earth's rock and sand in combination with the meteorite were melted into glass. This glass was spread over an enormous 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 are found in: Chlum nad Malsi, Bohemia, Czech Republic.
Without damage to nature
These pieces were legally won and sold. No damage was done to nature! The extraction of moldavite takes place under permits of the Czech government. Read more about this and also about the illegal extraction of moldavite in our travel report (in Dutch): The dark trade in moldavite
