Moldavite is one of the most unique extraterrestrial amorphous crystal gems known today. It belongs to the family of Tektites, which in Greek means molten. About 15 million years ago there was a meterorite shower in the Moldau Valley of Czechoslovakia, which is now the Czech Republic. The result of this shower is Moldavite, a rare silica gem of a bottle-green, translucent hue. It fell in an area covering some 500 square kilometers of the Moldau River Valley in the Czech Republic.
Moldavite has been prized for thousands of years and has long been the gift chosen by European royalty. It is believed by many to have been the green stone in the Holy Grail, which was said to be an emerald that fell from the sky. At least one legend has the Grail carved entirely from moldavite.
Moldavite is the only known tektite with gemstone quality. Nearly everyone is able to feel the energy of moldavite. Many sense it as heat, tingling or a pulsing sensation. Some feel a rush of energy, so using it with another grounding stone is a good idea. It is a "Stone of Communication" and stimulates cooperation and the transfer of energies. Moldavite is said to enhance psychic abilities. It is a very powerful chakra opener and balancer. Moldavite helps to release all that is no longer needed for personal growth: old ideas: leftover emotional habits, whatever you know on a deep level needs to go.
Moldavite is a Stone of Rapid Transformation! Many who experience its energy refer to it as the "The Moldavite Flush."
We have a limited quantity of Moldavite, each piece unique and special. Moldavite is unique and only occurs in 1 place in the world - the Czech Republic. The volumes found are significantly going down and prices have been on the rise. Mining was stopped during the pandemic, and supply disappeared. Prices have quadrupled in the last year, but we were still able to source a few choice pieces.
Large piece with beautiful texture, very translucent. Would be an excellent piece for a wire wrap. Weighs 5.7 grams.
