The inner peace and tranquility duo: Czechia Moldavite and Larimar from the Dominican Republic.  Here they are artistically arranged in sterling silver in a pendant that measures 0.41 inch wide by 1.29 inches long from the top of the bail.  The bail accommodates a chain up to 3.1mm thick.

Moldavite is 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."

Larimar meaning:  

The name Larimar was coined by the Dominican man who discovered it in 1916.  The mar portion comes from the Spanish word for sea.  Spanish is the language of the Dominican Republic.  The other part of Larimar is from his daughter's name, Larissa.
