Meteorites, Moldavites, and Tektites

Meteorites offer us a direct connection with the vast reaches of the universe. For most of us, these specimens will be the only thing that we can touch that is "not of this world". Professional meteorite hunters like Arizona's Steve Arnold, host of the "Meteorite Men" TV series, have helped to propel the interest in these unique specimens, by infusing the hunt with drama and passion. I spoke recently with Dr. Petr Zajicek, from the Czech Republic. A purveyor of fine moldavites, and vendor to the Jewelry Channel, Petr says that he thinks that within 10 years, the moldavite workings in the Czech Republic will be finished, with no more mining at that point. Scott's Rock & Gem is pleased to offer a selection of these interesting and popular collector items, while they are available.
