Moldavite is a member of the Tektite group, a glassy mixture of silicon dioxide, aluminum oxide and other metal oxides, with a hardness of 5.5 to 6. It is usually in deep forest green, some are in paler green. Moldavite is a rare and precious stone. Moldavite's formation coincides with the crash of a large meteorite in what is now the Bohemian plateau of the Czech Republic, approximately 14.8 million years ago. With such force the meteorite slammed into the earth and the heat and pressure fused together with the terrestrial landscape exploding back into the air and fell back to earth as a glassy Green tektite. Most specimens are found strewn throughout that area.
Moldavite has its origins in human use, tracing to ancient times when it was thought to be used in making of tools and as Talismans. In Talismans, it was said to be used because of the strange pulsing energy field of the stone, and was used as good luck and protection among others. It has been used by mystics to accelerate the awakening of consciousness and awareness as well as for healing. In addition to these, Moldavite can be worn as jewellery which allows the wearer to keep its energies in one's virbrational field throughout the day, for further strengthening of its effects.
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. It releases blockages in energy from the body on the emotional and physical levels. It affects all the chakras and it especially has a profound effect on the Heart, Third Eye and Crown Chakras. The Moldavite "Flush" is the most common feeling associated by people of a rushing warm sensation that flows through the whole body when holding it for the very first time.
