รายละเอียดสินค้า LIBYAN DESERT GLASS - 9.1 g.


This is a superb piece which has been beautifully sculpted and polished by the unrelenting wind/sand erosion. Its body has excellent translucence with an inviting pale yellow color. Excellent size which sits nicely in my palm, this fine meditation tool would also make a welcome addition to a tektite and meteorite collection.

'Libyan Desert Glass is one of the most unusual natural glasses ever described or seen. It is almost entirely made up of silica and is dispersed over a large area of the Great Sand Sea in Egypt. Analysis of the chemical composition of several different Libyan Desert Glasses confirmed their close compositional relationship to the mature Sandstones of the Jurassic-Cretaceous era 71 - 195 million years ago. Testing results confirm that LDG's are impact-derived glasses (impactites), and have chemical features similar to Muong Nong tektites. Possible inclusions are bubbles, Cristobalite, and sometimes dark streaks, but Libyan Desert Glass can be milky from thousands of bubbles or gem quality with almost no impurities.
