What is Moldavite?

Moldavite is the product of a meteor collision with Earth nearly 15 million years ago. The prevailing theory is that the meteorite impacted the Earth with enough mass and velocity 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.

Fake Moldavite | How can I tell if Moldavite is real or fake? June 12 2015 by Aaron Sousa , 0 Comments

The question I receive more than any other is how do you tell if a Moldavite is real or fake.  To this end I've started to write a comprehensive guide to doing just that.  In the coming weeks I'll be adding more pictures to give you a better idea of what the fake stuff looks like.  Here's a preview of the article so far:

First of all, it is important to know the origin of Moldavite before getting started. Moldavite is believed to be the byproduct of a Meteorite collision with the Earth about 14.8 Million years ago. Moldavite, known locally as Vltavín, is found only in the Moldau River valley of the Czech Republic; roughly a 40 square mile area. So you may wonder how you can be certain of the origin of the stone, and rightly so, since many counterfeit stones are accompanied by a counterfeit certificate of authenticity.

The online market of Moldavite is overflowing with replicas from Asia, but fake Moldavite is also sold throughout Europe and many other countries. It is not uncommon to find counterfeit pieces offered by private parties who have been duped and are trying to recover their losses.

Researching the dealer's history and verified reviews from former customers and clients will reward you with the most valuable of remunerations - the truth. You must keep in mind that many dealers have also been fooled in to believing that their stock of Moldavite is genuine, since this stone is so very rare and some replicas can be quite convincing. However, there are ways to discern the true Moldavite stone from the false.

Moldavite Photography Fun November 26 2013 by Aaron Sousa , 0 Comments

Hi there, Aaron here!  As many of you know I'm pretty much a one man show here at MoldavitePlus.com and I do all the jewelry photography myself.  In a typical session I'll take upwards of 500 photos that then need to be edited and whittled down to the choice remaining few.  While I do enjoy doing this, it can become tedious at times, so I like to have a little fun with the photographs.  One thing I like to do is tweak the highlights, shadows, colors and contrasts.  It ends up producing some interesting results and in some cases even brings forth some hidden details.  Below you'll find a few of my favorites linked to their corresponding pages:

I heard you sell Moldavite... November 06 2013 by Aaron Sousa , 0 Comments

So this is what happens when I bored.  This is a tongue in cheek, but factual video I put together of robot a and cardboard box person having a conversation on Moldavite.  In it you will find a few Moldavite questions answered, including briefly, Moldavite's metaphysical properties and a general guide on how to spot fake Moldavite.  I made this video over two years ago so the prevalence of fake Moldavite has increased, but it's still fairly easy to spot genuine Moldavite.  That's a topic for another post, onto the video:
