Moldavite belongs to the Tektite Group. Generally rough in shape in a pleasing green with a scarred surface and bubble-looking indentations. The most widely accepted theory behind the origin of moldavite is that it was formed by sand and rock particles melting as they shot through the atmosphere after a very large meteorite crashed into the earth’s surface. Everything around it vaporized except the minerals which boiled and came back as meteorite showers with the pull of gravity. Moldavite is found mainly in the Czech Republic and is one of the rarest varieties of Tektites. It was formed over 15 million years ago and is the only known “gem quality” stone of so-called “extra-terrestrial” origin. The mineral directs channelling and serves as a powerful tool for spiritual development and awareness. It is one of the most powerful of the “New Age” stones and facilitates the strong and clear connection between one’s consciousness and the higher planes of spiritual enlightenment. Moldavite works best for the third eye, the throat chakra and in the area of the crown chakra. It also acts as a healing balm for deep longings to “go home”. It helps one to understand one’s true purpose in life. Moldavite is a good healer where physical illness is caused by pollution (e.g. Asthma) and where cigarette smoking is a problem.
