Oak Leaf Real Cut Moldavite and Sterling Silver Pendant. Moldavite is a green meteorite glass that was formed during a meteorite impact 14.5 mil. years ago in the area of Nördlinger (Bavaria, Germany) where the crater of Ries was formed (24 km in diameter) as a result.
It is supposed that the meteorite was 1 km in diameter. The impact caused melting of sedimentary rocks which were hurled into the air, cooled down and carried to an area 250 km away, mainly in South Bohemia, the Czech Republic. The glass is named after the river of Vltava (the Moldau) which flows through this region. There is a finite amount of Moldavite available, this is a great opportunity to have your own as a beautiful and unique piece of jewelry.
