Moldau River Valley, Czechoslovakia
One of the larger specimens of Moldavite in our stock, this piece is covered with long, thin pits that radiate in a pattern from the centers of the two main faces on the flat, oval piece. It has a few damaged spots, showing conchoidal fracturing tendencies and vitreous luster, but most of the piece is in its original condition, with more of a greasy luster and the uneven, pitted surface. Its color is a deep forest-green and it is transparent, though the heavy pitting interrupts its clarity. Under magnification, one can see that the largest pits have smaller pits inside of them, which in turn have smaller pits inside of them, which have microscopic pits inside of them; it is wonderful to look at!
