WHAT IS LIBYAN DESERT GLASS? This Libyan Desert Glass was gathered from the shimmering sands of the Libyan desert, in northern Africa by bedouins and explorers. About 26 million years ago a giant cosmic bolide (asteroid, meteorite or comet) impacted this region and ejected the desert sand into the air. The sand was immediately melted by the heat of the impact and as it fell to earth it cooled and condensed into these beautiful yellow-frothed glass droplets. The telltale remains of the impact were scattered across parts of the Libyan Desert. This glass is so unique that it was found in King Tut's tomb and is even so special that it was chosen to be the centerpiece in his breastplate.
Size of the pendant: 2 1/4" L X 3/4" W X 5/8" D, Weight: 10.9 grams
This attractive, cosmic jewelry arrives in a quality jewelry box with an 18" sterling silver chain, information and Certificate of Authenticity.
