For sale is an impact fragment of a meteorite strike (also known as Libyan glass). These fragments come from a notable meteorite strike that took place in the eastern Sahara Desert (the present day border region of western Egypt/eastern Libya) approximately 29 million years ago when a large meteorite collision supposedly occurred in that region. Some theorists suggest that the glass actually formed as a byproduct of an atmospheric meteorite airburst (which is the less likely of the two theories). In ancient times, Libyan glass was considered a precious commodity and was worn as jewelry by the Egyptian Pharaohs.
