Libyan Desert Glass 

Highly Protective Mystical Energy

Written By Liz Oakes

Libyan Desert Glass are highly protective crystals and are beneficial to strengthen your will.  

They embody within them the vibration of the Golden ray, a powerful spiritual energy.

These unusual stones vibrate strongly within the solar plexus chakra, which is the seat of the will in the body.  

They are recognized as powerful manifestation tools, and are a lovely golden yellow color.

They have a good energy to guard you against any negative psychic energy being deposited in the solar plexus or in any other area of the body.  

This area works as a psychic shield, and these stones help the process by creating a strong resonance in this area. 

These crystals are also called Libyan Gold Tektite, and the metaphysical properties of these yellow crystals are very impressive.

This is a helpful stone for those who feel that they do not belong on this earth, and who feel they may originate from elsewhere in the universe.

Where Is It From? Libyan Desert Glass Meaning

The meaning of the name of these stones relates to the area where they are found in the Libyan Desert. 

They are located in only one particular area, in a specific region of the Great Erg or sand sea.

It is said that there is an enormous amount of this yellow glass in that area, found between a series of dunes in the desert.

The main area where most of this glass is found, is known to be a most inhospitable region, located near the Egyptian-Libyan border.

It is also called Great Sand Sea Glass and in some circles it is known as Libyan Gold Tektite, but we really do not know for sure that it is a tektite.

Regardless of whether we know how it came to be created it is definitely a stone of ancient origin.

How old is Libyan Desert Glass?

  • This yellow glass has been dated by trustworthy scientists, and is said to be over 28 million years old.
  • It is a very pure, silica rich glass, and many stones contain sand-dune particles within then.
  • Some pieces are also reported to also contain iridium. 
  • Although it has been known about by the people of the Sahara Desert for thousands of years, western scientists only discovered Libyan Desert Glass in the 1930's.
  • Some scientists say that it may have been the result of a meteor.

There has been some debate whether it came from outside the earth or was created by the heat of a meteoric event in the area.

Although scientists have not found evidence that the stone is not of this earth, it would have been created by an enormous amount of heat. 

This heat may have been generated by the crash of a meteor in that area 28 million years ago.

Libyan Desert Glass are energetically powerful stones. This may be because they embody the energy of the event that created them. 

The color of the glass varies, as you can see in the image below, and these crystals can be very pale yellow through to a deep yellow.

I heard its color described as canary yellow but you'll find that the color has little bearing on the level of its energy.

The actual shade of yellow is irrelevant, as even the pale yellow stones have a potent vibration.

Latest Note: be careful of fakes. There are yellow tumblestones selling under this name, and labeled from Australia, clearly they are not the same stone.
