Libyan Desert Glass, also known as Libyan Gold Tektite is a transparent yellow to soft gold colored variety of tektite (meteoritic glass created from the immense heat of a meteorite impact with the earth). The stones may either be slightly pitted or glassy, polished and shiny. It is a rare form of tektite found only in the Sahara Desert in Libya.
There are many stories surrounding this tektite and some say that it wasn't truly created from a meteor impact, but rather that it was created deep within the earth. Ashley Leavy in her book "Crystals for Energy Healing - A Practical Sourcebook of 100 Crystals" goes to say, "The exact impact site has not yet been located, so the origin of these stones is still highly disputed." - this could very well be why there are so many stories and tales around this tektite which lends to the mystery and fascination of them.
Ashley Leavy also offers this beautiful tip on how to use this tektite: "Charge your stone in the starlight by placing it on your windowsill overnight and carry it with you to absorb its vibrations."
Libyan Desert Glass fosters a deeper connection in all kinds of relationships (family, friends, etc.) and can be used to connect with family and friends especially when far.
Artists love working with the celestial energy of Libyan Desert Glass as it encourages artistic abundance and creativity.
For those who offer distant healing and/or psychic surgery, Libyan Desert Glass is the perfect aid to use in energy sessions.
As with all Tektites (Black/Brown and Moldavite), you can meditate or work with Libyan Desert Glass to connect to the stars and other worlds.
Physically, Libyan Desert Glass supports the circulatory system, reproductive organs and can be used to support healing from fevers and dehydration.
