Moldavite

Nearly 15 million years ago, a meteor fell to Earth in the area now known as the Moldau River valley in the Czech Republic. The impact of the meteorite ejected molten matter into the atmosphere, and, as this material cooled, it solidified and fell back to the ground.

The result was this amazing, and highly sought after translucent green mineral. Technically a tektite, this glasslike material is among the most rare minerals on Earth.

The specimens usually are sold in two different grades, regular and museum grade. We have both kinds, but the non-expert would probably not even notice the difference.

A regular grade piece will usually have a very small spot somewhere on the outside of the specimen that is not complete, possibly due to a small chip or some other reason. The only way to tell is that the surface of the specimen will be a little shinier at that spot as compared to the rest of the piece.

Specimens that are free of such a spot are considered to be museum grade.

The differences between the two grades, though, are minor, and would not likely make any difference to anyone but the most serious collector.
