Of all the stones I have ever worked with, none compares to Moldavite for sheer power. Even people who are not normally sensitive to the mineral world can often feel the effects of this rare and special stone. It has a very high vibration and works to open, clear and align all of your chakras. If you choose to work with Moldavite....Hang on to your seat....It will take you on an accelerated journey of inner growth and evolution. It is the ultimate transformation stone.

The Beauty of Transformation

"Transform your thoughts and embrace love as a way of life. Your soul's dance is one of great joy and by acknowledging its beauty you foster the awakening spirit and create positive outcomes in all aspects of life. The essence of being alive is to live like you mean it and transform limiting beliefs. By doing so you inspire the heart which will in return guide you along a path of bliss to a happy and passionate life."--- Michael Teal

"The time is now for transformation. It is a new era and we are poised with the opportunity to bring in a new consciousness, and co-create a new reality. Why? Because the light within each of us has been turned on, and it's our job to turn that light on brighter and brighter until all false thought forms dissolve in the light of our Truth."---Dr. Michelle L. Casto

The Big Event

Moldavite is one of the rarest materials on earth. It is a beautiful, pale to dark translucent green tektite, which most scientists agree was formed during the impact of a meteorite that was believed to be approximately 1.5 kilometers in diameter in Nordlingen, Germany, creating the Reis Crater nearly 15 million years ago. The force of the impact has been estimated at about 6 trillion megatons. The resulting explosion had the power of 1.8 million Hiroshima bombs, which exceeds the power that would be generated if we set off all the atomic bombs in the world at the same time. It is believed that the force of the impact pierced the earth's crust and penetrated the iron core, which disturbed the rotating liquid iron enough to reverse the earth’s magnetic poles.

There are differing hypotheses regarding Moldavite’s origin. Some scientists believe that the enormous impact and heat created by this event melted the earthly rock and sand from this area, sending it high up into the atmosphere, then raining back down on the earth in the areas of Bohemia and Moravia (Czech Republic), which is where most of the Moldavite is found today. Another theory is that this green colored tektite is of extraterrestrial origin, believing that it might be a type of obsidian ejected from a lunar volcano. And yet another, more popular theory holds that it is a fusion product of earthly rock and meteoric material, which was vaporized and propelled high into the atmosphere, then condensed into liquid glass as it rained back down on the surrounding areas. One thing that is agreed upon by all scientists is that it did indeed fall from the sky, which is why Moldavite enthusiasts love to call it ‘The Emerald that fell from the sky.'

The Many Benefits of Moldavite

“Time and again, in legend, myth and fantasy, you can find the story of the celestial green gem of transformation. A starborn catalyst of healing and wholeness, the sacred talisman of awakening, its call opens the door to our destiny. It has been almost unnoticed in our midst for many years, but now in the times of critical mass we find it again, the Moldavite, multitude of human channels. Its function as a spiritual tool grows and clarifies as we use it. As more of us find the commonality of our experiences with it, our sense of oneness grows." From the book, Moldavite: Starborn Stone of Transformation by Robert Simmons and Kathy Warner

Moldavite is number one on my list of high vibrational stones. Its power revolves around its ability to raise our mental, psychological and spiritual awareness. Moldavite is one of the best gemstones for the expansion of consciousness, spiritual growth and accelerated path of personal evolution. Those who feel the need to work with Moldavite often find themselves achieving rapid breakthroughs with issues from the past and the present, which makes it a great stone to wear or carry while undergoing psychotherapy. It is the perfect stone for helping us to break free of our perceived limitations. Moldavite is different than many other healing crystals in that it doesn't actually heal us, it helps us to understand the cause of our illness, dis-ease or emotional distress and thereby heal ourselves. Its high vibration helps to open, clear and align all chakras, but it connects most strongly with the 4th (Heart), 6th (Third Eye), and 7th (Crown) chakras.

Moldavite - Change you can believe in: If you are a person who likes the safety of a static life, then this stone could be a challenge. On the other hand, if change is what you're looking for, then Moldavite is the stone for you. It tends to focus on areas where you have blockages or wounds. Synchronicities often increase in frequency and significance. Your dream life can become quite vivid and more meaningful. If a job or a marriage is no longer serving your highest good, you may find yourself moving on. It assists you in moving into a higher expression of yourself.

The Moldavite Effect

The most common effect I have seen when a person holds Moldavite for the first time is a tingling sensation in the hand and up the arm, which often spreads throughout the body and causes a flushing of the face. This is called, 'The Moldavite flush.' Some feel heat emanating from the stone or energy jolts in different parts of the body. There are some people who have told me that it made them feel extremely relaxed when they first held one. This is less common, but it does happen. It varies from person to person, but most people, even the ones who aren't usually sensitive to stones, can feel Moldavite when they first hold it. Faceted jewelry can intensify these effects.

If you choose to work with Moldavite, start off slowly. Pay attention to how you are feeling. Many people feel light headed and a bit spacey when they first start wearing this stone. Just remember that your body is adjusting to a higher vibration. Start off wearing it for 20 minutes a day and build up from there. It's also not a good idea to put it in your bedroom or near your bed at night when you first get it, as it can disrupt your sleep. As your body adjusts to the frequency of this stone, you will be able to wear it comfortably all the time.

Moldavite can help to enhance the effect of other stones, especially, Amethyst, Aquamarine, Black Tourmaline, Citrine, Charoite, Hematite, Lapis, Larimar, Rhodochrosite, Sugilite, Smokey Quartz and Tanzanite and has a tendency to supercharge any stone you pair it with. It can be particularly helpful to use Amethyst, Black Tourmaline, Hematite,Smokey Quartz or Tiger Iron with your Moldavite if you are feeling spacey in the beginning. These stones can help you to feel more grounded and balanced during your adjustment period.

How To Use Moldavite

There are a variety of ways to use Moldavite. Here are a few suggestions.

Wear it in jewelry or carry a piece in your pocket:
The best way to use your Moldavite is to wear or carry it on your body. It doesn't require any work on your part to receive the benefits that Moldavite has to offer.

Meditating with Moldavite:
A great way to help your body adjust to using Moldavite is to do short meditations with it for several days to a week before wearing it. You will most likely find that you can avoid the light headed/spacey feeling by doing this. Once your body aligns with the stone, you may also find that your meditations are deeper than they've ever been before.

Sleeping with Moldavite:
Moldavite powerfully enhances the dream state and should be used with care until you have adjusted to its frequency, but if you are interested in lucid dreaming, by all means sleep with Moldavite under your pillow or next to your bed and get ready for the most vivid dreams you've ever had. I do it sometimes, but I find that my dreams become so active that I wake up feeling like I haven't rested at all. This is not the case for everyone.

A warning about driving:
I would not suggest driving while wearing Moldavite, until you have had a chance to assess how your body responds to it. Again, once you adjust to the stone, driving will not be an issue.

Things to know when buying Moldavite

If you find yourself drawn to purchasing one of these amazing stones. Here are some tips to help guarantee that you are getting the real thing:

~~Raw Moldavite ranges in color from a light olive green to dark green, sometimes greenish brown with rounded or irregular shapes and pitted or convoluted surfaces, as with the first 5 pictures.

~~It is never bright green as shown in the picture on the right. If it's the color of a 7up bottle, then it probably is a 7up bottle that has been melted and reshaped.

~~There are a number of counterfeit dealers working out of China, Thailand and Africa. Here are two web sites explaining how to tell if the Moldavite is fake: Fake & Frauds - Tektites and How to spot counterfeit Moldavite.

~~Moldavite always comes from the Czech Republic, Germany or Austria. If they tell you that it's Chinese or Tanzanian Moldavite. Run the other way..

~~Keep in mind that it is a rare stone and the average price for a piece of Moldavite is $15 - $20 per gram. Pieces from Besednice (the most beautiful of all) can go for even more. If they are asking a ridiculously low price then it is probably fake.

~~Seek out a reputable gem dealer who has experience with Moldavite.

~~Last, but not least....You will know when you are holding a piece of Moldavite. There is no mistaking how it feels. These tips were given for those who might need to purchase one online.

Here are links to two reliable Moldavite dealers:
Heaven and Earth Jewelry in East Montpelier, Vermont
Arkadian Collection in Winter Haven, Florida

Hi Denise, I'm so glad you loved it! Some people just flip over it from the very first time they see it. I love it so much that for our 20th anniversary, I had a new wedding ring made with Moldavite, Amethyst and diamonds. I thought it was a great representation of the deep connection we have in our marriage. If you decide to get one for your birthday and buy it online, feel free to send me a message with a link and a picture. I can tell you whether or not they are asking a fair price. Thanks for stopping by, my friend.

Thank you Carol for taking that extra step for me. I will do just that. Years ago during a illness, my husband was cleaning up around my hospital table and my wedding ring and engagement ring went with the trash. Ever since then the hubby has wanted to get me another ring. I have never been a huge jewelry fan for decades now but, as time ticks on I have decided I do want a ring to show the love I have for my Dan. Dan told me when I find it, just let him know. I have just found it. I am going to start looking and when I find a stone I will let you know. Thank you for going out of your way for me. You are a kind soul.:)

Hi Denise, If you are looking for a ring with cut moldavite, I would suggest looking at the Heaven and Earth website. They have some beautiful pieces. That is were I got my ring with moldavite and amethyst. They do all of their rings in sterling silver, but I had them do mine in white gold, then I went to a local jeweler and found a ring guard with diamonds around it. I did this before gold went through the roof.....thank goodness. If you would like, I can try to get a good picture of my ring so you can see what cut moldavite looks like. Here's my e-mail address: carolkinsman57@wildblue.net Send me a message so I know your e-mail address and I'll get back to you. I'm so glad you loved this stone so much. It's my favorite stone in the world. :-)) I noticed that you have a new article. I have been so busy this week that I haven't had a chance to sit down and read for the last few days. I will get to it soon. Big hugs to you, my friend.

Moldavite has been a most potent tool and, yes, even the biggest skeptics seem to be able to feel its energy. We keep our in a lead box and only open when meditating or going to sleep. The only stone more potent and obvious (you also gave this one to me) was the fossilized peyote button. That was one wild ride!

Dear Ridley,
I know you mean good but your moldavite is a stone that relates to the Sun energy. It loves the energy of light and freedom. Keeping it inside a lead box is not a good idea, in my humble opinion. Set it free and it will thank you. Blessed be always, Nilsa

This is something I am into as I love precious stones. I usually hold the stones in hand and if I feel the magnetic pull, I know that the stone is meant for me. They just respond to you, if its meant for you and you will see the glow and the colour when you wear it on skin and the calmness that takes over to make you feel the best in the world.
Nice one!!! I am sure you have this stone for you to write this in detail.

Hello Kendra, Without holding and looking at the rings it is impossible for me to tell you if the Moldavite is genuine. There are a lot of fakes out there. When buying online, I always suggest to people that they buy from Heaven and Earth, a company in Vermont or Arkadian Collection, based in Florida. Both give written guarantees that you are getting genuine Moldavite.
Web site for Heaven and Earth: http://heavenandearthjewelry.com/search.aspx?find=moldavite+rings
Web site for Arkadian Collection: http://www.arkadiancollection.com/search/node/moldavite%20rings
Good luck to you on your search for the right Moldavite wedding bands.
Blessings,
Carol

Hi, i'm new to moldavite and crystal healing.
And there are somethings that i don't understand. I've heard other people saying that low quality( Anything with more than 5% of the total surface area or a good exposed area ), rough Moldavites with dings and nicks present are not good for making nugget necklace(for transformation and healing purposes etc) because it weakens the effect. Please help me with this.
Thanks.

Hello Wei Ping,
I don't think that dings and nicks in any way effect the healing properties of Moldavite, but it does effect the esthetic beauty of the stone. I would go by how you feel when you are holding the stone. Good luck to you..
