Moldavite Pendant O
This genuine Moldavite pendant is set in sterling silver. This Moldavite came to us from a very reputable and reliable gemstone and mineral seller in Vancouver. They have amazing connections and have been able to secure us these genuine pieces from the Czech Republic.
This specimen pendant measures approximately 1 1/4" long including the bale. We do sell chains separately in our shop as well. Set in sterling silver with an open back so the light can pass through the Moldavite.
NOTE: Images show what Moldavite looks like when backlit and held up to the light - magnificent! When worn against the skin, it is usually a dark olivine green, sometimes more of a jade colour, or even a 7-UP glass bottle green.
Genuine Moldavite is raw, chaotic, uneven, rough, with odd and interesting markings, edges, and sometimes natural holes. This is due to the very forceful and very chaotic way it was formed.
Moldavite is hard to come by, as we're sure you're already aware of. We only sell genuine Moldavite from a very reputable source who imports it from the Czech Republic, Austria and Germany. It is becoming RARE, and thus the market value price of Moldavite has skyrocketed. We are definitely not overpricing our Moldavite, because it is genuine and very costly for us to obtain. Thank you for your understanding.
As you may already know, Moldavite has taken the world by storm, and is becoming harder and harder to find. The Moldavite we offer has been certified as being genuine by our suppliers who've been in the rock and fossil business for decades. We only sell genuine Moldavite. It's not often we are given the opportunity to offer Moldavite to our customers, as it's not easy to come by anymore. We will be posting up what we have available as it comes to us in small shipments.
Moldavite is thought to have formed about 15 million years ago in the impact event that produced the Ries and Steinheim craters in southeastern Germany. An incoming asteroid is thought to have broken into two pieces that produced this pair of craters. The impacting bodies approached from the southwest. They hit with a high enough velocity to melt and splatter the target rock across a strewn field that includes portions of what is now the Czech Republic, Austria, and Germany.
