Moldavite always green, but can vary from a yellowish green to a true dark green to a blush green. It is a vitreous (glasslike) silica formation that happened with a meteorite hit an area in the southern part of Germany and in the Czech Republic. This happened about 14 or 15 million years ago. Rocks that are naturally occurring glass as a result of a meteor impact are called tektites. They are different from the glass that forms from volcanoes in that they do not contain any water in them. If you melt volcanic glass, such as obsidian, it will be foamy because of the water content. Sometimes Moldavite is spelled moldevite or mouldavite.
The first time the public learned of its existence was in 1786 at the Bohemian Scientific Society in Prague during a talk given by Josef Mayer from the Prague University. He called the specimens chrysolites. Fifty years later, they were called Moldavite. The name had its roots in the Moldau River in Bohemia in the Czech Republic, which is where they found it.
Moldavite is also known as crater glass and as "the stone that fell to Earth."
