Two noteworthy finds of moldavites were made in southern Bohemia. In both cases two moldavites are thrust into each other. The collision evidently took place during the flight of an inhomogeneous swarm of moldavites, still plastic but already displaying almost definite aerodynamic shapes. It is the first time such moldavites have been encountered, and the authors propose to designate them as double moldavites.
