What is Moldavite?
Moldavite is a spontaneous crystal from extraterrestrial impacts that belongs to the Tektite group. Tektite derives from the Greek word tektos, which means molten. Tektites have an indeterminate crystalline phase and are vitreous mixes of silicate minerals, alumina and iron oxide, and other noble metals. Opaque Moldavite is evergreen, unlike some other Tektites from across the planet, pitch black or brown. It is the only type appropriate for carving and forming as a jewel.
One look at Moldavite and there’s no question it is a stone of greatness, etherically carved of spiritual fire and destined for purpose. This mysterious green talisman is star-born, formed from nature’s violent meteoric impact with Mother Earth. Etched by force and flame as it fell from the heavens Moldavite returned to the earth’s surface transformed, a glass of amazing delicacy and grace ready to serve humankind.
As a Stone of Connectivity, Moldavite carries 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.
Moldavite is undeniably a magnificent gemstone, theoretically sculpted of cosmic flame and predestined for grandeur. This mysterious greenish amulet was created by nature’s catastrophic celestial collision with Planet Earth. Moldavite, engraved by strength and heat as it descended from the sky, resurfaced changed, a crystal of incredible refinement and elegance prepared to help the world.
Moldavite bears an intense vibration as a Gemstone of Connectedness, a synthesis of worldly and otherworldly forces sensed instantly and often profoundly in individuals who align with its potency.
This beautiful stone is rare, found only in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, formally known as Czechoslovakia which was disbanded in 1993. While scientists differ in theories regarding Moldavite’s origin, nearly all agree its formation coincides with the crash of a large meteorite approximately 14.8 million years ago in what is now the Bohemian plateau.
The rock metamorphosed by the heat of impact, creating a strewn field of Moldavite in the two, mostly rural, areas of Bohemia and Moravia. Farmers often turned up the stones when plowing their fields, while other specimens worked their way to the surface after spring thaw or heavy rains in the fall. More recently collectors have “mined” for gem grade and museum quality specimens by sifting and digging through loose sands and gravels.
