Moldavite: Out of this World?

So is moldavite from outer space?

Ahhh, dreamy cosmic greeny moldavite. You’ve heard so much about it, or maybe you haven’t. My goal in teaching about crystals is to give you the metaphysical properties (this may vary somewhat from person to person b/c not all of us experience frequencies in the same way) & always back it with  whatever science is available too, then I try to throw some FUN into it. icon smile Moldavite: Out of this World?

Moldavite Science

Moldavite is a type of rare green colored tektite. What are tektites you say? They’re naturally formed small glass rocks that most geologists believe were formed by the impact of meteorites on Earth. Being glass means these are not technically crystals nor minerals at all, but rocks.

These are black tektites:

Black tektites like these are found on Mother Earth within a narrow equatorial belt around Thailand, Australia, Vietnam & the Philippines. The strongest scientific origin theories state that they took a very fast trip through the atmosphere while they were still molten & then landed on Earth, SPLAT!…little gifts for us to discover later.  So basically, this theory states that its natural glass created from the immense heat of a meteoritic impact with the Earth. An alternate theory states that the meteorite impacts actually occurred on the Moon & that tektites are droplets of rock that splashed off the Moon onto Mother Earth! Dating techniques suggest such an event occurring about 700,000 years ago. Yet another strong theory points to an impact in Indochina from an extra-terrestrial object.

Moldavite is a specific tektite named after the Moldau river region in Southern Bohemia, where most Moldavite can be found. Many scientists believe this area was impacted by a meteorite about 15 million years ago which mostly likely created the current moldavite sold on the market. The green color is mostly likely due to the iron content & possibly some olivine (peridot) from the original meteorite).

Real or fake?

Be careful, there’s a bit o’ fake moldavite on the market especially sold on ebay from China & then redistributed by others in the US.Some are taking green bottle glass, melting it & then etching it with acid to make it look like moldavite.

I now make an annual trek to Tucson in Feb. for the world renowned Tucson Gem & Mineral Shows. There I hook up with a seller who hand mines with a plow on farm land in the Moldau region. His family lives there & they make all their income for the entire year off of their moldavite findings sold in Tucson! Its a meager but honest living for them. Last year they told me how its  getting harder for them now. Several years ago the Czech government changed the rules; you can only dig to 1 meter unless you have a permit, which can be costly.  He has also told me its becoming increasingly harder to find the green rock as its getting more & more scarce, thereby driving up the price.

No one would dare come to the Tucson Gem & Mineral Shows trying to sell fake moldavite unless they want to be bounced out face first into a cactus!

Plus many of us are walking around with jeweler’s loupes looking for teeny tiny wormlike inclusions telltale of the real deal moldavite. icon smile Moldavite: Out of this World?

How can you tell if its fake sans loupe? Well, if it has a blue cast to it, it may very likely be bottle glass. Also, large pieces of moldavite are extremely rare so be aware of those & do your research.

The Woo Woo

Metaphysically tektites are  known to rev up  thought transmissions while enhancing psychic abilities & astral travel. Woo! What a trip! They can also increase energy fields, open & clear the lower chakras & generally enhance & strengthen your  aura. Australian aborigines refer to tektites as “Mabon”, or magic & believe that finding one brings good luck! In India, they’re known as the Sacred Gem of Krishna. Tektites can also assist you in attaining knowledge & learning your life lessons. They also really help to balance the feminine/masculine aspects.

All tektites, including moldavite, are said to have a very high vibrational frequency due to their cosmic connection. Moldavite specifically helps with meditation & peak experiences during meditation as well as making contacts with other worlds. Its also known for rapid spiritual evolution, chakra cleansing, activation & transformation. The green in moldavite also brings a frequency that resonates with the heart chakra, helping to open & deepen heart-centered meditations.

Good stuffs this moldavite!

I have experienced it myself, but you must be very careful not to OD on it, like I have. At first, all I noticed was the tingly warm feeling most described, but in working with it more, it certainly did its magic & then a sneak attack! Dizziness, flushing & lightheadedness are common OD’ing symptoms. If you are not experienced with working with crystals & meditating then I recommend waiting until you are more experienced & then take it verrrrry slow & in small doses. And even if you are experienced, ALWAYS balance with a good grounding stone, like black tourmaline. I learned this the HARD WAY!

 Here’s a video I did on moldavite on my YouTube Crystal Channel: High Ascension Crystals – Moldavite and Scolecite

I’ve been really drawn to working with moldavite quite a bit lately. On 11-11-11, I made moldavite gem elixir & now I’ve taken the chips I had left from last year’s Tucson trip & along with my Moldavite Gem essence & a few other magical ingredients & I’m working on a very special moldavite high ascension gem oil to use during meditations. Its going to be COSMIC!!

Recently, I’ve been having certain crystal healings done by my Crystal Healer & CCH, Gina here in FL & she did a Moldavite Session for me that was AMAZOING! Here’s a vid clip from our pre-session & what she had planned for me:

BTW, if you’d like a piece of moldavite, I do custom shopping for my clients while in Tucson for special requests. (Payment required upfront). For serious inquiries you can contact me here.

So, have you worked with moldavite? Have some? Jonsin’ for some? Think you have the real thing or a fake? Please share. icon smile Moldavite: Out of this World?

    A new stone, unfamiliar to me. Good thing you made this post. :) When I feel the energy, it’s like looking into the black space of the galaxy, but with a tinge of the star’s energy within it. Alien like! The energy OD that you expressed, I have not felt with moldavite, BUT I have felt with jet! That’s the only stone that has given me OD symptoms when I felt too much of it. Super powerful.

    Moldavite feels like a heart stabilizer and brings a feeling of subtle joy. Like misty stars twinkling the galaxy, almost humorously, amused by the irony of life. Hmm.

    I think I’m starting to like this stone. :)

  • Michelle says:

    I LOVE Moldavite! I have a beautiful pendent that I wear from time to time and a little piece that I have in an egg shaped cage that I wear with some other crystal goodies. I also have a Moldavite essential oil that I use when guided for myself and clients. Amazing stuff!

  • Patricia (Tree) Cinque says:

    I have to say that I wear a 2″ piece of Moldavite (real for sure) along with a Pietersite sphere every day. Wowie is all I can say. Things just manifest quickly. When I first bought the Moldavite, I was warned. Heed the warning. The rug gets pulled out from under you and your truest desires emerge–whether or not you want them to. I went to school for Interior Design worked a little, got the Moldavite, then for no apparent reason, I decided I didn’t really want to do that and changed careers. People have been known to divorce once they get the stone and make changes they wouldn’t normally have made. It is getting a kick fron the universe. It is a stone that pushes you to fulfill your desires. Buy it and expect to go from zero to 200 mph! Wonderful stone:)

  • Barb says:

    I do have a real piece of moldavite and I am looking to make a pendant out of it to wear always. To me, it is beautiful and I will always treasure it.

  • Rai says:

    I LOVES me my Moldavite! I have had the OD experience as well with my first piece. I would also get an unexplained cough and sore throat if I wore it for more than a day or two. (That piece by the way decided it was not for me and VANISHED a short while later.) I purchased my most recent piece at the gem show in SFL and I cherish working with it. I feel that these stones are very special and if you treat them with patience and respect they can take your meditation and practice to the next level.

  • Joanne Klauber says:

    I received my first piece last week from you, Stephanie, and I was thrilled to see a little skull-like face smiling at me when I hold it up to the light. Amazing… I’m looking forward to working with him!

  • David Mitchell says:

    I really love combining Moldavite and Libyan Desert Glass. The combination is an example of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts. Hold on when you work with both at the same time!

  • Lucy says:

    Moldavite is a weird one for me. I love the idea of it, but whenever i get near my tiny little piece I go all tingly and feel a bit odd. Id love to work with it but maybe Im not ready yet. I have in the past held moldavite above my crown chakra for about 30 seconds – and it made my mood zoom upwards for about an hour – a natural antidepressant?!

  • Risa Franco says:

    I wear moldavite everyday. I have for years. I also have a ring that has a moldavite and meteorite that is a very interesting piece made for me. I have a big moldavite pendent that I wear once in a while. But I have never had exeriences like you all have mentioned. Maybe because I have worn the smaller moldavite for years every day. My jeweler that made the ring and the larger pendent goes to Tucson every year for that large gem and mineral show and he also shows his jewelry there. He personally knows a man that found the largest czech moldavite. But that is where he purchases his from in Tucson.

  • Elizabeth says:

    I loved my piece of moldavite and got lovely vibes just holding it. Then I allowed someone else to experience my stone and it’s never been the same for me. I have washed it under cold running water, sat it on the window sill in full sun. I wish I could get the energy back that it used to have.

    • Heather says:

      I know what you are talking about. I have had similar experiences with my moldavite and other stones. I think the moldavite waits for us to have the similar “desire for communication” with it that we had before we shared our experiences with others. Moldavite is an extremely Intimate stone! It really seems to be for the one that finds it and noone else. :)

  • Norman says:

    I kept it in my pocket to see its effect on me for a few days and my sleeping problems got really bad. (already have a hard time) And I slept with my clothes on and wondered why I couldnt sleep even though I was exhausted. So a warning here…don’t sleep with it. Esp if you already have problems sleeping. After not wearing it for a while I still felt it’s effect on me. It didn’t occur to me to reground myself though, duh! Grounding stones always make me feel like I’m stuck though. And for a gemini it’s not a comfortable feeling. (though I still like them for some reason)

  • […] Yep, it’s known as a “high-ascension” stone. […]

  • Carey says:

    I’ve had gemstone moldavite in my collection for over 20 years before it became popular and never had any reaction to the earrings, about 5 carats each ear in gold, BUT, when I bought a ring recently, and wore it, I became a bit anxious after about an hour and took it off. My adult daughter is drawn to the earrings but I told her that it wouldn’t be a good idea until she acclimates to using crystals in general. She is reallllly drawn to those earrings!! Thank you for the information. Definitely needed to learn this. I meditated with my black tektite and that made me anxious as well. I’m thinking maybe I’m not ready to use it yet, so back into the sacred box it goes until I am more prepared. Have a great day! Love receiving your newsletter!

  • Claudia Stearns says:

    Thank you!

  • Dennis HYJ says:

    I am new to moldavite but i own a moldavite and paired it with emerald tumbled stones and little green phantom.
    I not sure how to feel it. Need help!!! when I am holding my moldavite i feel my own heartbeats in my hand that holds the moldavite.. How to feel them like OD’ed Would like to try

  • Nora says:

    I am wearing 4 little moldavites total about 9 grams around my neck in combination with a big raw citrine, for about 2 months now.
    Before moldavite I was drawn to citrine since I was a teenager, that was the only stone I felt drawn to, than last year came lemurians and than suddenly there was moldavite
    Immediately when I got them my relationship started to get more tension. My partner was holding info for me and every time I wore it, I felt that something was wrong in my relationship… that there was a dishonesty. The stone made me so crazy, it was burning in my chest and thinking about that now makes me kind of sad because, it was really forcing the situation towards a certain direction, the truth, thinking about it makes me sad because the truth can be hard.

    I have the feeling the stone needed to tune somehow, callibrate, with me for a while. And after 2 months wearing it what I can say it totally gave me my rooted feeling back from when I was twelve yeas old. When I was a child, the way I look at things, The time I take nowadays for self developement is wonderful. It gave me myself back, just by wearing it. I will start to meditate with it curious what will come next. If become friends with it, it will definately help you in the right direction.

  • Alex says:

    I’m a college student who has a large collection of meditation stones and wanted to try moldavite for the first time. All I can really say is that it has changed my life, brought me to the darkest depths of my depression just so I could see my way out of it. I began questioning by very own path in life. I became very in sync with the stone, like it was my best friend. Just hearing about it’s celestial qualities urged me to try and get one b/c I have never really felt home on earth and made many friends.. i can say if you are a deeply spiritual person with a yearning for the truth, this stone will take you places and you shouldn’t heed any warnings or force any beliefs until you try it for yourself.

  • Frederic says:

    I usually like to sleep with a stone in my hand, and with the moldavite something interesting happened :
    I lost track of two people who were quite close. The suddenly quit responding to my messages, without saying anything about the why.
    Time have passed, did its job, and I almost forgot about it.
    Came my night holding a piece of moldavite.
    I had a very accurate dream where the 2 persons were facing me and told me the bad I did to them. During the dream I felt ashamed and unproud, but I woke up in peace : I got aware of my mistakes, was able to forgive myself, and therefore to move on :)
    (of course, if I ever meet them again I will apologize properly)

  • Mrym says:

    I first encountered moldavite recently in a crystal shop near my work…
    I’d seen a Libyan Desert Glass on their site and thought it’d be interesting to go meet it …. when I got to the shop and asked the staff where they kept their tektites, I got to see the Libyan glass, some darwinite and moldavite sitting in a little glass cabinet.
    The minute the staff pulled out a tiny piece of moldavite, smaller than a thumb nail, my body started screaming for them to get it away.
    Man. They took out five all at once and I felt like crying.
    Kinda scary way to find out your an empath by wanting to cower in a corner from a tiny piece of moldavite aha.

  • Tara says:

    Very interesting read and videos. Do you have moldavite essence?
