Moldavite discovered in Czechoslovakia was formed around 15,000,000 years ago by meteoric impacts, impacting bodies created the hot molten glass like tektites to be thrown high into the atmosphere, on decent these molten bits of earth mixed with the debris of our solar system cooled and formed the glassy green Moldavite. A rare event created a rare substance!
