IMPACTITES FOR SALE
Impactites include impact glasses, tektites, impact breccias, and shatter cones, and are terrestrial rocks that have been altered or created by the heat and pressure of a meteorite impact. Impactites are sometimes all that remains of ancient meteoritic events from which the meteorites themselves — and sometimes even the crater — have disappeared.

LIBYAN DESERT GLASS

These outstanding specimens came from a colleague who has close ties with Egypt. They were acquired years ago, before the ban on hunting was enacted by the Egyptian government. Please note the exceptional translucency and fine character of these pieces. High quality Libyan Desert Glass specimens are graded by their clarity, shape and color. These superb specimens have the best clarity of any I've ever offered for sale. If you want a good piece of desert glass, get it now. I doubt I will be able to acquire comparable specimens in the future.

Extremely rare green LDG specimen with "streaks" or Crystobalite inclusions
Probably less than 1 in 1,000 Libyan Desert Glass specimens display a clear green tint. These lovely examples are among the most colorful and striking we've ever come across. Research work by noted impact specialist Dr. Alain Carion, and others, has determined that the gray streaks within these specimens contain traces of the original meteorite x—frozen forever in natural green glass. A rare and intriguing collectible.

Excellent specimen with green/gray streaks

A solid specimen with blocky shape, intriguing surface features and wonderful smoky green hue. This individual has banding caused by remnant pieces of the impactor.

MOLDAVITES
Moldavite mine in Czech Republic

Moldavites are stunning rich green impact glasses created by the heat and pressure of an ancient meteorite impact. They are found in a very few areas within Bohemia and Moravia in the Czech Republic, and the Republic of Moldova, which gives these captivating impactites their name. Some experts believe that moldavites are associated with the Nordlinger Ries impact crater event. If that is correct it would make them approximately 15 million years old. While most impact specialists believe moldavites were created from melted terrestrial matter, they do display some characteristics associated with meteorites.

Mining in the Czech Republic (see photo at left) has depleted the supply of quality specimens and a limited amount of material is available on the consumer market. Moldavites have a hardness rating of 5.5 and are often faceted for use in jewelry. When cut and polished, their deep green color is reminiscent of emeralds and peridot.
