Put your tin foil hat on! Moldavite has landed
Moldavite is a member of the Tektite group of natural glasses formed from interplanetary collisions. From the Greek word tektos, meaning molten, unlike other Tektites from around the world which are tar black or brownish-black, Moldavite is a deep forest green.
This beautiful stone is rare, found only in Czechoslovakia, and is named for the area in which it is found, near the Moldau River. 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 created a strew field of Moldavite in the two, mostly rural, areas of Bohemia and Moravia.
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. Many people believe moldavites crystal energy is amplified in combination with herkimer diamonds. Because of Moldavite's intense vibration, some may experience light-headedness or a lack of grounding and may need to acclimate themselves gradually to wearing it.
Moldavite is a powerful aid for meditation and dream-work, as well as increasing one's sensitivity to guidance, intuition and telepathy, and the ability to understand messages sent from higher realms.
Moldavite is relatively fragile and should not be cleansed with salt water to avoid scratching its surface. Moldavite is becoming increasingly scarce so grab your own magical piece soon!
