This is a beautiful hand selected piece (with no chips) of natural LIBYAN DESERT GLASS from Egypt I hand mounted in a 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" - inch - mineral specimen box for it's rare aesthetic beauty. :o)

Libyan Desert Glass measurements are in millimeters.

This piece of Libyan Desert Glass is broken fragments from people making tools from the LDG in Neolithic and even Aterian times (Paleolithic). This is scrap, called "debage", it's chips from making things.

This piece could also be taken out of the box and wire wrapped as a rare pendant, used for crystal healing, meditation, home decor for the collector etc.

Between the towering sand dunes of the Eastern Great Sand Sea of Egypt are long narrow gaps where bedrock is exposed.
It is in these areas of exposed surface a wondrous natural glass is found. Libyan Desert Glass is the remaining evidence of a tremendous asteroid or comet impact with the Earth.
Probably an air burst explosion caused the released sufficient heat to melt and fuse the surface of the ground.
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.

More on Libyan Desert Glass from Egypt when I get more time...
