A new museum in the Czech town of Český Krumlov is to display a wide array of moldavites. The unusual vitreous materials are likely formed during meteor impacts around 15 million years ago. They are dark green colour and are particularly common in central Bohemia. The museum, which is set to open in 2013, has been aided by a five million crown grant from the EU’s Operational Fund. Presently, Český Krumlov, a tourist hot-spot in southern Bohemia, is already home to eight separate museums, reports ČTK.
