Moldavite

Did you know?

Moldavite: the E.T. of gemstones! is a member of the Tektite group.  The colour of most specimens is deep forest green.  Moldavite’s formation coincides with the crash of a large meteorite in what is now the Czech Republic, approximately 14.8 million years ago.

Scientists differ on the origins of Moldavite.  Some say Moldavite is earthly rock melted by the heat of the meteorite crash, while others suggest the material is of extraterrestrial origin, possibly a type of Obsidian ejected by a lunar volcano.

Throughout history, Moldavite has been regarded as a spiritual talisman.  The Neolithic people of Easter Europe wore Moldavite at least 25,000 years ago, and used Moldavite for arrowheads and cutting tools.  In Czech folklore, Moldavite was believed to bring harmony to marital relationships, and was used as a traditional betrothal gift for centuries.  Moldavite is associated with the legendary Holy Grail and was throughout the Middle Age so highly prized only nobility and royalty were allowed to wear it.

In modern times, Moldavite has emerged as one of the many stones most prized for metaphysical purposes.  Psychologically, it assists in developing detachment from mundane, earthbound security issues such as money and worries for the future.  It also supports qualities such as empathy and compassion.

Moldavite is unconventional and inspiring, bringing the unexpected solution forward.  It can awaken latent memories and access spiritual information through the intellect.

Physically, Moldavite is said to help asthma, allergies or rashes causes by modern chemical or pollution.
