Libyan Desert Glass is found on the borders of the Libyan & Egyptian Desert.

The deposits are spread over many kilometers and their origin was a mystery for centuries until recently analyzed and found to be the result of a meteorite which exploded above the surface of the desert.

The intense heat of the fireball liquified the sand, leaving an extremely pure pastel green Silica glass.

This fine example has excellent clarity for the species and is a well-cut, lively gemstone.
