Moldau River Valley, Czechoslovakia
One of the largest specimens of Moldavite in our stock, this piece has a rather long, teardrop-shaped form with a thin, tubular hollow that runs along three-fourths of its length. It shows heavy pitting on its outer surface, and much smaller, shallow indentations lining the tubular hollow. The pitting seems to follow a pattern, but I know little about what causes it, thus it is difficult to trace it over the stone. The pitting does accentuate the specimen's greasy luster, though, and though it is transparent, the pitting also interferes with its clarity. I think it is the oddest-looking Moldavite piece in our stock.
