Raw Freeform Libyan Desert Glass

Libyan Desert glass or Great Sand Sea glass is an impactite, found in areas in the eastern Sahara, in the deserts of eastern Libya and western Egypt. Origins of the glass are relatively unknown but most scientists today believe that it is the result of sand on Earth having melted into glass following an enormously energetic asteroid or comet impact around 29 million years ago. Compared to other tektites from around the world, Libyan Desert Glass tends to have a higher concentration of iron oxide. It also has smaller amounts of magnesium oxide and silicon dioxide. Libyan Desert Glass also contains small amounts of iridium, which gives it the golden color.

Some cultures believe that wearing Libyan Desert Glass can keep negative energy away from them and benefits include assisting with healing, peace, and inspiring creativity. It's also supposed to help in meditation by soothing one's mind.
