WHAT IS LIBYAN DESERT GLASS? Scientists think that Libyan Desert Glass was naturally created by the high heat impact conditions of a comet, meteorite or asteroid hitting the sand in the Libyan desert. The searing temperatures caused the sand to vaporize and then fuse into these beautiful droplets of glass. When this cosmic event occurred there was literally a rain of golden droplets of glass from the sky! This unique glass was found in King Tut's tomb and is the centerpiece in his breastplate. It has been used in art, jewelry and trade for ages.
This Libyan Desert Glass has been custom set in beautiful sterling silver, hand wire wrapped, open cosmic design. The remnants of a small portion of the material from the impact event is embedded on its exterior and can clearly be seen when held up to the light.
Libyan Desert Glass Lore: These stones have been carved and made into jewelry for centuries. They carry tremendous energy, like moldavites and Tibetan tektites. There was a tremendous amount of force involved in meteorite impacts and explosions. Libyan Desert glass activates creative energy and a positive, enthusiastic spirit.
Makes a great gift! Can be worn for casual, fashion and evening wear.
