Libyan Desert Glass: The Galactic Treasure of the Ancient Egyptians
by Adrienne Goff, Healing Crystal Expert
Moldavite has been having a big moment, but have you heard of Libyan Desert Glass (aka Libyan Gold Tektite)? It’s also an extremely rare, high-vibe tektite that formed from a meteorite crash. The Ancient Egyptians revered this golden space gem, honoring it with the title of “the Rock of God.”
Libyan Desert Glass came into existence approximately 28 million years ago, making it about 13 million years older than Moldavite. It is found in the Sahara Desert in Libya and Egypt, and it has a beautiful yellow or golden color that reflects the hues of the desert sands.
Its formation story was a puzzle for centuries that was just definitively solved in 2019. Some researchers believed that it formed due to an airburst, which happens when a meteorite hurls through the atmosphere and explodes above Earth. Others postulated that it formed from an ancient nuclear explosion, which implies that there is still so much we don’t know about the technological savvy of the ancients. (Cue the Ancient Aliens theme song!)
We now have proof that Libyan Desert Glass actually formed as a result of a meteorite crashing into Earth. The energy of the impact instantly melted the sand and rocks, hurling the material into the air, which cooled during flight and formed tektites. Scientists recently detected the presence of Reidite minerals inside of Libyan Desert Glass, which is a mineral that can only form during specific high-pressure situations, like meteorite impacts.
Although Libyan Desert Glass was officially discovered and recorded in a 1932 survey, the ancients certainly recognized and worked with this extraordinary material. There’s evidence that it was used in tools all the way back to the Pleistocene age (2.58 million to 11,700 years ago). It was also incorporated into weapons, carvings, and jewelry by the Ancient Egyptians.
Perhaps the most famous jewelry example we have comes from King Tut’s funerary necklace. The centerpiece is an ornate scarab carved from a piece of Libyan Desert Glass. The Ancient Egyptians held a belief that this necklace was infused with spiritual powers. It’s fascinating that Libyan Desert Glass was a stone of choice for Egyptian royalty. Perhaps they understood and appreciated the special energetic properties of this remarkable tektite.
Like all tektites and impact glasses, Libyan Desert Glass has a powerful, zippy vibration that can be felt as heat or tingling sensations. As a stone that blends Earth material with galactic frequencies, it is a favorite stone of star-seeds and spiritual people who consider their true home to be a place beyond Earth. This high energy stone can benefit you on multiple levels:
