Metaphysical & Spiritual Properties
Discovered in 1932, Libyan Desert glass traces back to ancient Egypt. It was found on the elaborate funerary necklace of King Tutankhamen – in the center was a detailed carving of a scarab. This was believed to be imbued with supernatural powers, even after death. The ancient Egyptians referred to Libyan Desert Glass as the “Rock of God”.
