Moldavite is an absolutely fascinating stone that was formed over 15 million years ago when a massive meteor collided with the Earth. This cosmic stone is the only Tektite (meteorite) of gemstone quality, making it highly unique among all gems. It is sought after for its singularity and rarity, which is manifested in a considerable variety of sizes, shapes, textures and shades of brilliant green.
Moldavite is said to carry an intense frequency, a fusion of earthly and extraterrestrial energies that are quickly felt, often dramatically in those who resonate with its power. Holding Moldavite for the first time often produces a sensation of heat, felt first in the hand, then progressively throughout the body. In some cases the heart chakra is activated, experienced as a pounding pulse, followed by sweating or flushing of the face, and an emotional release that may range from laughter to tears. Moldavite’s frequency may take some getting used to, but its profound ability to accelerate one’s personal and spiritual evolution makes it highly sought after in the metaphysical world, both for its life-altering capabilities and as a catalyst for drawing in Light to aid in Earth’s healing.
This rare stone is found only in Czechoslovakia and is named for the area in which it is found near the Moldau River, which is called the Vltava in Czech. While scientists differ in theories regarding Moldavite’s origin, nearly all agree its creation corresponds with the impact of a large meteorite approximately 14.8 million years ago in what is now the Bohemian plateau.
Moldavite has a rich history, prized since the Stone Age and used not only for arrowheads and cutting tools, but as a spiritual talisman and amulet of good fortune, fertility, and protection. It was found in the archeological site of the Venus of Willendorf, the oldest known Goddess statue, and has been linked to legends of the Holy Grail, thought to be an emerald that fell from the sky out of Lucifer’s crown before he was cast from Heaven. In Czech lore, it was given as a betrothal gift to bring harmony to marital relations, and for centuries has been used in jewelry, religious items, and for spiritual transformation.
What is unknown and, perhaps, unknowable, is from where this meteorite came and how long it flew through the expanses of space before colliding with the Earth; a most cosmic story, and one which has led to much interest in this beautiful gem.
