Moldavite

Moldavites fell over the Moldau River Valley in Czechoslovakia as part of a meteor about 15 million years ago.  Scientists believe tektites are formed by the fusion of meteorite material with earth rock.  The heat and the soil or sand formed the glass.  Another theory is that tektites were formed by the fusion of meteoric materials on the moon.  From the impact it bounced off the moon and then was pulled to earth by earth’s gravity.
