Healing Properties of Moldavite
Moldavite is quite popular in metaphysical circles and is well-known as a stone of spiritual awakening and an accelerant of personal evolution. As a green stone it is most active with the heart chakra, but the power of this stone can act on and open all chakras and enhance any spiritual pursuit.
It has been known to affect people quite strongly. The pieces you can buy are usually quite small (or quite expensive!), but a little goes a long way. Use it in meditation and to enhance dreamwork or visioning.
What is Moldavite?
Moldavite is a kind of tektite. A tektite is a chunk of natural glass formed from the debris of a meteorite impact. The intense impact melts and scatters matter which then cools while still in the air and lands in a wide distribution around the impact crater. Moldavite is found near a specific crater within the Czech Republic from a giant meteorite that landed around 14.7 million years ago. It is dark mossy green and has a characteristic wrinkly texture. Its physical characteristics are similar to other types of glass, like obsidian. High-grade moldavite is more translucent and the surface has a fern-like pattern.
It is not known if moldavite consists only of earth matter or if it incorporates matter from the meteorite. Either way, it is a rare and special gemstone. Pieces of moldavite have been used in sacred jewelry throughout history, and some theorize that the Holy Grail was actually moldavite.
