Besednice Moldavites / Moldavite
Besednice Moldavites are prized tektites for their eclectic exotic shapes, clarity and amazing green color. These tektites from this particular area near Locenice, southern Bohemia, are named Besednice Moldavite, which are characterized by sharp projecting points protruding out in all directions from the Moldavite body, are unique in form, and exceptional in quality. The specimens we carry are of excellent quality, each having been selected for shape and surface texture. The Besednice specimens are considered by many collectors to be the most beautiful of all Moldavite due, to the incredible emerald green color, the unusual shapes and translucency of these rare tektites.
The area around the Ries Crater, in Germany, is probably the source for Moldavites. The age of the crater, 14.7 million years old, is identical with the age of Moldavites. The most popular explanation of the origin of these tektites, according to Prof. Bouska, is that they were formed during the impact of a large meteorite with the Earth’s surface. A number of researchers have suggested that the surface material in the area around the Ries Crater, in Germany, is probably the source material for Moldavites the age of the crater is identical with the age of this kind of tectite.
