Although this moldavite specimen looks crystalline, it has an amorphous structure, like all glass. Made from the debris of a meteorite impact, it cooled into this shape. The arms radiate from a central point, "like a droplet of water after it hits a solid object." 3.1 x 2.7 x 2.0 cm, Bohemia, Czech Republic. © Rob Lavinsky, www.iRocks.com. Used with permission.
