WHAT IS LIBYAN DESERT GLASS? This unique glass was found in King Tut's tomb and is the centerpiece in his breastplate. It is found in the Libyan desert. No one knows exactly how it got there, but scientists think that it may be the remains of an asteroid or comet hitting the Libyan sand and causing the sand to vaporize into these beautiful droplets of glass. Libyan Desert Glass is natural glass, made of melted and re-fused sand in the desert of north Africa. These remnants of cosmic collision are called "impact materials", and they are fascinating specimens that hold clues to the nature of the object that struck.
This beautiful Libyan Desert Glass has been custom cut and set into this beautiful 14k gold teardrop jewelry setting.
Collected before 1970.
Very elegant! King Tut would have been very pleased.
