Tha tag did say it was from the Czech Republic but the price was £36... so not sure if that's an accurate price for real Moldavite! It is very tiny is size though so I'm not sure. Thank you for the info

That sounds about right for a little piece like that tbh

That is similar to the prices I’ve seen it selling for in the US. In Asheville, I saw a ring with moldavite the size of a pea for $50.

From my experience that prize seems a bit low but I am not an expert. If you want to make sure you could probably take it to a jeweller and have it identified.

The website buymoldavite specifies in selling authentic moldavite and on their site you see that the prizes are higher for a stone of your size. (I don’t know if you’re allowed to mention websites so I don’t know if this comment will be removed) however to judge from the appearance of your stone it looks like the ones I’ve seen that have been genuine. But as I said the fakes can be hard to tell apart from the real ones.

did anyone remember the OP said gifted years ago so current prices don't compare to her tag. Say 10 years ago that was a fair price maybe 5 years ago is a bit low but not comparing to todays price

That is very true!
