We now have #moldavite In at #desmoinesnewageshop !!!!!!
*I started this article a while ago, but have had a heckuva time finishing it lols
**I have a small container full somewheres at the shop or in my garage……but it’s currently hiding… so I had to go & source new Moldavite- everybody is OUT or back-ordered to next year.
Annnnnnd finding REAL, GENUINE Moldavite is tough!!!!! It was always a little difficult, but now it’s REALLY difficult!!! Good gravy!**
And so after much hunting, I bring you Moldavite in wirewrap ring form 🙂
These pictured are paired with #clearquartz and #obsidian 🙂
We also have #herkimerdiamond & #blacktourmaline that can be paired with the Moldavite in rings.
These are just a few of the favorites to combine with Moldavite.
WHAT IS MOLDAVITE:
Moldavite (a type of #tektite ……..also known as Bouteille stone or Vltavin & was originally introduced as Chrysolites in 1786. The name Moldavite was first used much later- in 1836) is a vitreous silica projectile rock- or natural glass that was formed in the heat of an asteroid hit- which occurred around 15 million years ago(roughly). The splash of hot glass formed a strewn field across central Europe.
Moldavite is usually yellowish-green, green(ranging from forest to olive), or greenish-brown in color. It has been cut into faceted and cabochon gemstones since the mid-1800s. These are used in many types of jewelry. It also contains tiny tiny bits of lechatelierite -a high temperature for of SiO2.
WHAT DOES MOLDAVITE DO:
It is said –
Moldavite is truly the stone of the New Age, as it blends the energies of its extraterrestrial origins with our earthly energies- creating powerful healing vibratory frequencies.
It can release suppressed traumas, support spiritual self-healing, clear energy blockages, aid in necessary transformation, it is a powerful spiritual protector, improves mental health energetically, aids in much-needed self-discovery, heals the heart chakra, & gives off Powerful Bursts Of Physical Healing Energies. It is also a powerful meditation & dreamwork stone.
It is an amazing crystal to create change in your life and is one of the best stones to use for psychic protection, as negative entities cant really get a good foothold in your energy while you are wearing it- Just too high vibe for them.
Moldavite will act as a push to revitalize and accelerate your path of personal & Spiritual evolution.
Moldavites energy will tend to target the areas where you have spiritual/emotional/energetic blockages & wounds- it will clear these first so that you can resonate at a higher frequency with it and be in the best heartspace to allow its energy to work with your own.
And while this is all going on it will bring to the surface all of the things that you urgently need to recognize, honor, integrate, and clear out……… kinda like a Planetary retrograde!!
***Moldavite energy has been said to resonate at such a high vibration that it can be felt throughout the entire body****
*Please keep in mind that everyone’s experiences(Moldavite, crystals, etc) are different & entirely subjective to their individual point of view as well as where the individual is along their life journey.
My Personal Experience with Moldavite-
It is an extremely effective mind clearer, the feeling is akin to standing by the ocean while a singing bowl concert is going …. The main difference being that it works much faster.
Cleansing & Recharging Moldavite-
Moldavite doesn’t really need to be cleansed (barring severe negative energy saturation). You can Occasionally cleanse it with White Selenite or Moonlight.
It IS good to recharge your Moldavite (the frequency of recharging is dependent upon the frequency of your usage), recharge it by placing it in the moonlight and/or celestial events.
Yep, you can wear it every day.
Just like most of your vibratory crystals, you will likely wear your Moldavite until the deepest needs on your journey with it have been resolved, then you will scale back your interaction with it until you have need of of it on your life journey once more.
Moldavite vs Tektite(or Black Moldavite lol)-
So, you may be curious what exactly is the distinction between Moldavite and Tektite.
Tektite is the general term for naturally occurring glass that forms from the impacts of large meteorites on the earths surface.
So Moldavite IS a Tektite, it is just a very specific(and extremely popular) Bottle green to Brown-green variety.
*There has been a recent trend Referencing Tektites as “Black Moldavite”, this is doing the rest of the Tektites a grave injustice (while I understand both the concept behind it AND the marketing scheme, it is still an egregious misrepresentation of some very potent vibratory healing gems)
So, I will include the Tektites general properties here (the properties will vary somewhat by location & the composition of the Meteorite ):
What is a Tektite?
It is a rare Glass that forms through the heat of an asteroid striking the earth. Tektites are found in only a few places on earth. Some Tektites are rarer than others. Central American tektites, for example, are quite rare as these only come from one tiny area.
Its energy increases the energies that surround it, strengthens the aura, raises your vibration, clears the blockages in the lower chakras, and is a boon to any who seek spiritual advancement
Moldavite is actually Rarer than diamonds-
There are roughly 300 tons of authentic, genuine Moldavite in totality.
Around 300 tons of Diamonds are mined every decade…….so Yep, Moldavite is definitely rarer than diamonds lols.
How to spot fake Moldavite-
Fake Moldavite is, unfortunately, a very real issue (We have fake Himalayan salt lamps, fake Malachite, fake etc…….not a shock that we have fake Meteorite glass hunh), and it is extremely easy to fake and very difficult to differentiate between the real & the fake.
*Many Fakes will even come with a certificate of authenticity- a certificate of authenticity which oftentimes is only for the buyer’s comfort and ends up being meaningless once the certificate is found to be forged.
So, First & Foremost I would say spotting a fake is ALL about the “Hum” or vibration from the stone.
*Sometimes you can tell via photograph- especially if you are extremely sensitive to Crystal vibrational energies- sometimes not. But if you don’t feel that “Hum”, I would personally steer clear of the Moldavite.
Another great way to tell a fake is if the piece has NO tiny bubbles…no imperfections, no inclusions…if its perfect, it AINT NATURAL.
***I am told that you can use a black light or UV light (but I dont have one so I cannot personally say for sure at this time, I will update this article once I try it out :D) to spot a fake.**
A few other good telltale signs for spotting fake moldavite are-
When the piece is Rough:
1 The piece looks wet or super shiny-though newer forgeries have more of a rough look & texture
2 The piece is a lookalike for any other popular pieces that you have seen (the piece more than likely comes from a mold).
3 The piece looks A LOT like the rest of the pieces in the same seller’s collection
4 PRICE: if it is too cheap….then it’s most likely a FAKE (Or the Seller has zero clue what they have)-although there are many fakes selling for high dollar as well.
5 The piece is larger than the largest piece of moldavite available.
When the piece is Polished:
if the piece is “perfect”- no bubbles, inclusions(which are ALWAYS present in any cut & polished Moldavite-sometimes you just need a microscope…unless the piece is too small lols)
Having it x rayed
Using a powerful microscope to find the inclusions in it. (Its impact glass, so its going to have particles & gas bubbles in it.)
The most surefire way to determine whether your moldavite is genuine or a fake is to have it Xray analyzed.
* I am still researching where to have this done within a reasonable budget.
My advice, buy from a seller that you can trust!
