Libyan Desert Glass is a type of tektite that is found in the Sahara Desert, primarily in the Libyan Desert. Tektites are natural glass objects that are formed when a large meteorite impacts the Earth's surface, causing the rock and sand to melt and fuse together, creating glass-like objects. Libyan Desert Glass is believed to have formed around 26 million years ago when a meteorite hit the Earth.
The history of Libyan Desert Glass is shrouded in mystery, as the exact location of its source crater remains unknown. However, it has been found in ancient Egyptian jewelry dating back to the New Kingdom period, around 1500 BCE. It is also believed that the ancient Egyptians may have used Libyan Desert Glass as a gemstone for decorative purposes. In modern times, it has been studied for its unique chemical composition and possible uses for scientific research.
Metaphysically, Libyan Desert Glass is believed to have powerful spiritual and healing properties. It is thought to be a stone of transformation and manifestation, helping individuals to align with their highest purpose and achieve their goals.
