Moldavite (in Czech called Vltavín) is an olive-green or dull
greenish gemstone formed in the heat of meteorite impact
about 15 million years ago. Czech moldavites are the only
European tektites and also the only gem quality tektites
in the world with such a beautiful green color.
Over the millions of years that have passed since
the impact event which formed moldavites, much of the
material has been eroded away, and much has been buried.
As a result, moldavite is only rarely found today in small areas.
Their number was very limited by the relatively small scale of the deposit itself. At the beginning of the 21st century this deposit was completely worked-out and there is currently no chance of finding any other pieces.
Moldavite could be faceted as a very rare
gem. Nice pieces of rough moldavite could be
also used in jewelry. These attractive
uniquely-shaped pieces are commonly
wire-wrapped by precious metals and made
into pendants or earrings. The best
specimens are often purchased by collectors
for very high price.
The most famous is the Besednice locality, a source of the very most valuable moldavites which in comparison with other localities have the significantly and best developed morphology of the surface. Therefore moldavites from Besednice are preferred in the best jewelry on the market.
The current issue of moldavite counterfeiting is a
much-discussed topic. We use state-of-the-art
analytical methods to ensure that our moldavites are
guaranteed to be genuine. Most specimens of genuine
moldavite contain trapped gas bubbles and flow
structures that are visible under a certain objective
magnification. Today, much of the rough and
gemstone moldavite being sold are undisclosed fakes.
If you are purchasing moldavite online, there is a
very good chance that you will receive imitation
For this reason, we offer the highest quality and guaranteed genuine samples, where there is a very attractive evaluation due to the constantly skyrocketing price.
