    • Moldavite cake shape is a type of disc. It looks really like a cake with pressed the inside and with protruded edge. I will add a photo…

  1. Hi Frantisek, thank you very much for your kind reply. I see how it can look like – it’s quite a known shape among tektites. But I am curious to see the picture to be sure and for the pleasure of the eyes !

  2. Love this site! Thank You!
    A question- What about square/rectangle??

    (I’ve got 2 beautiful, elongated square, and slightly curved in, kind of like a slab of tree bark. Nearly perfect, with all of the classic signs of authenticity. Wish I could share a photo)
