Moldavite is within a league of their own. It is a classic gemstone like no other. Unlike other gemstones, it had been formed from the impact of the intense meteorite shower between 15 and 20 million years back. Moldavite is the only known "gem quality" stone of extra-terrestrial origin.
The meteorite materials were fused through the tremendous heat and pressure made by the impact after which catapulted into the Earth's atmosphere. Once these meteorites began to fall back toward Earth, they began to fracture and scattered hundreds of kilometers within the Moldau River Valley, which lies north of Prague in Czechoslovakia. The friction of atmosphere from the cooling magma from the meteorites created the unique surface sculpture available on Moldavite.
Moldavite is scientifically classified as a member of the Tektite family. The term Tektite is derived from the Greek word tekto, which means "molten". It describes a kind of natural glass formed by high temperatures and pressure when meteorites impact the earth. Tektites are found on the planet only within a narrow belt across the equator about 80 degrees wide.
Tektites usually have a heavily pitted surface, and at first glance appear to be dark colored. However, when organized against a strong source of light, golden tints and translucent areas is often made out near the edges.
Tektites have been found in Thailand, Australia, Vietnam and the Philippines. However, Moldavite has only been based in the Moldau River Valley, Czechoslovakia. Moldavite is definitely a rare precious stone. It is prized for its clarity and different deep green color.
