WHAT IS LIBYAN DESERT GLASS? This Libyan Desert Glass comes from the shimmering sands of the Libyan desert, in northern Africa. About 26 million years ago a giant cosmic bolide (asteroid, meteorite or comet) impacted this region and ejected the desert sand into the air. It 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, and there it remained until bedouins and explorers discovered them. 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.
This Libyan glass was legally collected and elegantly woven by a skilled artisan into this sterling silver exclusive jewelry. Shipped in a very attractive crushed velvet jewelry box with information and COA, Certificate of Authenticity.
Great unique jewelry, exceptionally beautiful!
Collected before 1970.
