Libyan desert glass
Lovely 68.8 g Libyan Desert Glass Specimen. It has tons of deep regmaglypts like dimples all around - a really neat and interesting piece! No damage.
Between the towering dunes of the Eastern Great Sand Sea of Egypt are long narrow gaps where bedrock is exposed. Libyan desert glass is generally yellow in color. It can be very clear or it can be a milky, even bubbly light yellow. Some fragments have dark bands and swirls of brownish material. It is in these dark areas that some of the melted comic body is believed by some to be preserved. Libyan Desert Glass was used in ancient times as a gem stone for the Pharaohs and remains a highly prized impact glass for collectors today.
