The Libyan Desert Glass in this starburst tektite jewelry has been trimmed and polished to fit this great-style pendant necklace. The results are spectacular, contrasting dynamically with the 925 sterling silver. The ventifact nature of the glass with its great straw-yellow color and sprinkling of natural cosmic dust can be easily seen.

The Egyptians were probably among the first to discover Libyan Desert Glass and used it creatively for adornment and jewelry. They also carved it into the form of a scarab which was then placed as the centerpiece in one of the breastplates for the young Egyptian Pharaoh King Tutankhamun.

Libyan desert glass is so extraordinary that upon scientific examination it was found to be filled with nano-diamonds, iridium, traces of chondrite meteorite and other geological signatures of an apparent meteoritic impact. A bolide or comet struck the sand, heated it to temperatures hot enough to melt and fuse it, while ejecting it into the air. As it cooled, the glass particles fused into these golden droplets were scattered across the desert floor of that region.

Size: 1"W X 1 1/4"L X 3/8"D, 11mm cabochon center setting. Weight: 4.8 carat. Great jewelry for casual or evening wear.
