Czech Moldavites (Vltavin) - real Moldavites from our country. Jewels with Moldavites - WHOLESALE
Moldavite is a green meteorite glass that was formed during a meteorite impact. It is named after the river of Vltava (the Moldau). Main localities are in the Southern Bohemia (Czech Republic).
Moldavites were formed 14.5 mil. years ago in the area of Nördlinger (Bavaria, Germany) where the crater of Ries was formed (24 km in diameter). It is supposed that the meteorite had 1 km in a diameter. The impact caused melting of sedimentary rocks, that were cooled while they were actually airborne and most fell in the area of 250 km distant localities.
Moldavites are very rare. Many jewelry makers try to make fakes (especially in China). We are manufacturers of genuine Moldavite jewels and we select moldavites of the finest quality directly from collectors. Our company guarantees the real origin of Moldavites.
We are probably the first jewellers who created a jewel that can be named: BOHEMIAN JEWEL (Bohemia - part of the Czech Rep.) - we combine moldavites and old jewellery methods of granulation and filigree - very popular methods in early medieval Great Moravian Empire.
