Libyan Desert Glass Pendant

Libyan Desert Glass Pendant

In the southeastern spur of North Africa’s Great Sand Sea, there are several fields of luminous, yellow-green glass known as Libyan Desert Glass (LDG). Due to the lack of any visible impact crater, the most likely source is a low-density asteroid or comet airburst explosion leading to the fusion of silica-rich sands roughly 28,500,000 years ago.

This necklace features a fragment of Libyan Desert Glass set in sterling silver. While the size and shape of each pendant are unique, we have generally selected pieces that are similar to those pictured on the site (roughly 0.75" long and 0.5" thick). Given the heft of the pendant, we've opted to include an 18" (45cm), sterling silver wheat chain with each pendant. As pictured, the necklace comes with a handsome display/storage box and a small information card that also serves as the certificate of authenticity.
