Out of This World

We are fascinated by things from “outer space”, and I put that in air quotes, because WE are also in outer space, LOL!  And whenever we find this bottle green gem, Jason and I get excited about getting some for the store! 

If you aren’t familiar with outer space beads – keep reading!

Tektite is natural glass formed by the heat and impact of a meteor, found in North and Central America, Central Europe, Australia, South East Asia, and the Philippines. Tektite comes in earthy colors: dark brown, green, and black. The color is directly related to where they’re from!  

Moldavite is OUT OF THIS WORLD!!  Very hard to find in larger pieces, AND in the bottle green color.  Moldavite is a specific kind of tektite formed by a meteorite impact in southern Germany. It was discovered in the town of Moldauthein which is now in the Czech Republic and identifiable by a olive/bottle-green color. Moldavite has a “growing moss” texture with unusual swirls, folds, and bubbles.
