COMMENTS: An out of this world gemstone, literally.

Here is a spectacular natural very rare larger Czech "Bohemia" Moldavite where the gem rough was mined from Chlum, Southern Bohemia in the Czech Republic (formerly Czechoslovakia). Moldavite is only actively mined in four locations in the Czech Republic, and the only other countries known for moldavite production is Austria & Germany (Bavaria). -- ((Moldavite (also called "Bouteille Stone") of good quality, such as these gemstones can command a very high price, but even general comparisons put the stones value at as "that of higher quality larger amethyst". Moldavite falls under the class of "Mineraloids" and under the physical properties of "Tektites" (Meteoric Silica Glass) which was formed by a meteorite impact. Tektites are still poorly understood. They are irregularly and at times intricately shaped nodules and blobs of a glassy substance. They have no crystal structure, and are therefore similar to obsidian, but are not associated with volcanic processes. Their chemistry is unique and somewhat unexplained. The leading theory concerning their origin is the "Meteorite Impact Theory". It is postulated that many odd events occur during a meteor's impact because of the tremendous heat and pressure produced. Tektites may be fused glass that formed during an impact of a meteor with layers of rock on the Earth's surface. Tektites occur in broad bands in specific localities in different parts of the world. These bands produce characteristically similar tektites and are sometimes loosely associated with meteorite craters or suspected craters. Could these fields represent splash material from an impact? Many believe so and this idea is gaining acceptance from many scientists. The odd and diverse chemistry of the tektites could be a result of unique meteorites hitting unique rock types with the combinations producing particular effects. Some tektites, called Moldavites, are especially prized for their clarity and unique green color. Moldavites are found in a "splash field" centered around Moldavia in former Czechoslovakia and are believed to have come from a meteorite crater in Germany. Moldavites are sometimes cut as gemstones or put into jewelry as natural uncut pieces to show off their often eerie and beautifully intricate shapes. High quality Moldavite stones, such as this larger one, are often used in hand crafted jewelery, and thus enter the market away from mainstream jewelery fashions, but more centered around art & craft, and such as have gained an almost cult status.)) -- We are talking a absolutely gorgeous and very rare top larger gem here my fellow members, not commonly seen or faceted in this size and weight. This rare larger gem has a world class olive-green color, remarkable luster, excellent face up and superb eye appeal! This remarkable terrestrial gemstone runs no less than $450 on the market, no joke!!
