Libyan Desert Glass, also known as Libyan Golden Tektite, hails from the Saharan Desert between the Egyptian-Libyan border. What we KNOW is that it formed almost 30 million years ago.. what we *don’t know* exactly is 𝓱𝓸𝔀 it was formed. Most science points to it being a Tektite which is the mineralogical result of a meteor impacting the earth. However, in this case, it’s unclear where the meteor would’ve struck- so it remains a bit of a mystery.
What is generally agreed upon is this gem’s intensely powerful energetic attributes. Similar to its Tektite cousin, Moldavite, Libyan Desert Glass has a high vibration, and an energy of personal transformation and manifestation. It resonates with the Solar Plexus Chakra - our center of self-will, confidence, motivation, and personal power.
One of my factories facts about Libyan Desert Glass is that when they discovered the tomb of King Tut, and unearthed his mummy.. they found he had been buried with a gem-studded breastplate - the center of which bore a large scarab carved out of.. you guessed it!
This glowing gem hangs from 30” solid copper chain, oxidized to a darkened finish, and accented with Fluorite and Lepidolite beads.
The pendant has gone through a copper-plating process known as electroforming. It deposits a thick layer of copper onto the pendant - which also works to enhance the inherent energetic properties of the stone itself, as copper is an excellent conductor.
Copper has been worn for its healthful benefits for millennia; copper jewelry dates back to ancient Egyptian times. The absorption of micro minerals has proven helpful in joint stiffness, pain, and inflammation. It has antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. Plus it's simply beautiful to wear!
I charge every crystal with healing reiki energy, and cleanse it with white sage prior to shipment. It arrives carefully packaged with a protective, hand-crafted blend of herbs and petals.
