Moldavite is an olive-green or dull greenish vitreous substance known as a Tektite. The word Tektite comes from the Greek word tektos meaning "molten” they are natural glass rocks up to a few centimetres in size. Tektites are can be black-brown, olive-green (Moldavite) or white-yellow ( Libyan Glass ) and their shape varies from rounded to irregular.
Moldavite was created over 14.8 million years ago when a huge meteorite struck what is now the the town of Nordlingen in Germany, forming what is known as the Reis Crater. The town is situated in the crater area which originally had a diameter of up to 24 kilometres. The crater rim has suffered much erosion in the intervening period but is still between 100 to 150 metres high in places. The Reis crater is known by scientists as a rampart crater, a type which is only found on Mars, making it a very unique occurrence. These craters exhibit a fluidised ejecta after the impact of the crater…….this is what travelled through the air for between 300 and 600km into the Czech Republic to form Moldavite.
Because Moldavite is so unique much has been written about what it may do for us metaphysically, and opinions vary greatly.
It is often known as "The Starborn Stone of Transformation”, taking us through the transformations we undergo in life, sometimes we experience transformations we know we need and sometimes it can reveal transformations we simply don’t expect.
Moldavite offers a very wide range of properties metaphysically depending on our personal needs. Indeed, Kevin our crystal guy, believes that even if we research Moldavite for years to come we will not be anywhere near discovering all of its potential it has.
Moldavite formed where Earthly and extraterrestrial energies have been bonded together, producing energies which can be felt by a n increase of body temperature or even an emotional release from laughter to tears. Moldavite is well known as a crystal with an ability of accelerating one’s personal spiritual path, when used for meditation assisting the ability to understand messages sent from higher realms, (ensure you have a grounding stone during meditation).
