        King Tut's gem hints at space impact
       
      In 1996 in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, Italian mineralogist Vincenzo de Michele spotted an unusual yellow-green gem in the middle of one of Tutankhamun's necklaces.

      The jewel was tested and found to be glass, but intriguingly it is older than the earliest Egyptian civilisation . . .
