9.06 grams. Most probably from Nesměň, Czechoslovakia.   Impactite

Matthias writes:
I must confess - without being a specialist on this field - that I have never before seen a twisted, spinning Moldavite. Spinning Guang Dongs, yes, but extremely rare. LDG, no. Moldavite, no. Not until now, not until this one. This piece was just in metamorphosis, during flight, to become a dumbbell. A sudden interruption stopped this evolution. So we see a somehow half-dumbbell, elegantly twisted, crowned by a prominent bubble central top.

Thank you, Gentlemen. The Halley comet, Daniel - yes, now I see it, too. A spinning wanderer.
