Aouelloul Crater Glass


Aouelloul Crater Glass is sometimes called Brown Moldavite, as it was formed in a similar way, by a meteorite strike. Aouelloul Crater is in Islamic Republic of Mauritania, West Africa, on the edge of the Sahara Desert.

The age of Aouelloul Crater Glass is estimated to be 3.1 ± 0.3 million years (Pliocene).
