Moldavite is a gemstone that was formed by a huge meteorite impact which splashed a bunch of Terrestrial soil up into space. The reentry burned off all the carbonaceous material, leaving just the silicaceous (glass) to fall back to Earth. While most tektites like this are black, Moldavite, found in the Moldau region of Czechoslovakia, is a beautiful glassy green. The pitting of the stone is a natural surface, caused by the bubbling of the molten glass. I was lucky enough to find a specimen that was shaped appropriately for wand construction. The spicy electric energy of this slender, gently twisting Spicewood branch seemed to be the only wood qualified to harmonize with the cosmic event crystallized into this gemstone. 16 7/8 inches long.
