The workings of Libyan desert glass
This tektite carries both earthly and cosmic energy, supporting you in your spiritual development while also keeping you grounded. Libyan desert glass also has a strong influence on the solar plexus, has a protective effect on energy leaks and promotes self-confidence. This tektite also has a strong connection with Egypt and its history. In ancient Egypt (3300 - 300 BC) many beads and amulets were made from it.
For example, a breastplate with a scarab (dung beetle that symbolizes life, death, resurrection, protection and transformation) was found in 1922 and belonged to Tutankhamun.
Libyan desert glass was also used in the Stone Age, mainly to make sharp objects.
The origin of Libyan desert glass
Libyan desert glass is also called Libyan gold or Libyan gold tektite. This 'stone' is a tektite that was most likely formed by a meteorite impact about 28 million years ago. Libyan desert glass is special because most tektites are very dark because they contain carbonized material. Scientists speculate that Libyan desert glass is so light in color because the meteorite exploded in the air before landing on Earth. Libyan desert glass can only be found in the Libyan desert in Egypt.
Rarity of Libyan desert glass
Libyan desert glass is also called the sister or brother of Moldavite , as they are both tectites with a special color, a special story and special effect. Yet Libyan desert glass is slightly less known than moldavite , although its fame is increasing as people have come to appreciate its energetic properties. Libyan desert glass is quite rare because you can only find it in one place and generally no large pieces of it are found.
