What is Moldavite?


Moldavite is what's known as a tektite.  Tektites are a subcategory of the meteorite family believed to be created when a meteor impacts the Earth under the right set of circumstances.  The meteorite collision that created Moldavite occurred nearly 15 million years ago. The prevailing theory is that the meteorite impacted the Earth with enough mass and velocity that it vaporized itself and the surrounding material almost instantly. Those vapors were ejected back up into the atmosphere where they solidified and rained back down as a solid. The strewn field can be found in what is now called the Moldau River Valley in the Czech Republic. These green gems are among the most rare minerals on earth. They have been prized by humans for thousands of years and are still given as gifts from royalty to royalty. In legend, it is believed Moldavite was the green stone in the Holy Grail and has the power to quicken one's spiritual evolution.


Metaphysical Properties


People not sensitive to the energies of stones often feel the energy of Moldavite. Many sense it as heat, tingling or a pulsing sensation in their hand. Others feel a rush of energy through their body, usually upwards out the top of their head. Moldavite's high vibrational energy is a powerful chakra opener, particularly at the heart and above. Sleeping with Moldavite activates the dream state and can precipitate lucid dreaming. Wearing it helps manifest positive life change.
