Faceted moldavites in combination with red garnets or zirkons and silver. Small red garnets are other typical gems from the Czech Republic.

I wondered how many fake moldavites were being sold and at what price, or in other words, just how many buyers are being scammed.

I drive by fields where moldavites are possible to find almost every day. During the spring and fall season, I am always on the lookout for the time when farmers plow over the earth, looking forward to going out there and searching for Moldavites.
