Moldavite
Mysterious Tears from Heaven

English Language: English

Author: Hanus Radek et al.


Tektites are pieces of natural glass that can form when a meteorite strikes the Earth. Moldavite formed specifically with the impact of the Miocene epoch Ries meteorite in southern Germany. This giant meteorite created a crater 24 kilometers in diameter and spewed moldavite and all kinds of rocks as far as 450 kilometers into the historic regions of Bohemia and Moravia in the present-day Czech Republic. This book focuses on these unique tektites and their centuries-old history, distinguishing them from common glass, discussing their use as gemstones, and wandering into the metaphysical. It includes some 1000 photos of natural, faceted and carved moldavite.
