Abstract (in english)
   More than 25 years after the first moldavite find in Lusatia (German: "Lausitz"), there are still no detailed studies of these glasses and their host sediments. This work contributes to the discussion on the origin of the Lusatian moldavites. Results suggest that their origin cannot be completely explained by fluvial transport from the South Bohemian sub-strewn field. Physicochemical characteristics of the Lusatian moldavites together with the paleogeographical and stratigraphical position of the moldavite-bearing sediments support this argument. Most Lusatian moldavites display features that are unknown in Bohemian moldavites and occur only in the Moravian moldavites. This suggests an independent Lusatian sub-strewn field within the moldavite strewn field
