Moldavite is gaining a well-deserved reputation for being a catalyst for change, but it is not for the faint of heart. If you are thinking about bringing a piece into your life, keep reading to find out what this mysterious tektite has in store for you. 


Where does Moldavite come from?

Moldavite is also called The Holy Grail Stone and The Stone of TransformationThis lovely green stone is found mainly in southern Bohemia and Moravia (both in the Czech Republic), minor occurrences are in Upper Austria (Waldviertel) and Germany (Lausitz), and very rare occurrences have been reported from south-west Poland. (1) If you find a stone listed as Moldavite, but it doesn't not come from any of these regions, it isn't Moldavite. 

Moldavite’s origin coincides with the crash of a large meteorite approximately 14.8 million years ago in what is now the Bohemian plateau. The rock metamorphosed by the heat of the impact, creating a strewn field of Moldavite in the two, mostly rural, areas of Bohemia and Moravia.

Moldavite has a rich history, prized since the Stone Age, and was used not only for arrowheads and cutting tools but as a spiritual talisman and amulet of good fortune, fertility, and protection. It was found in the archeological site of the Venus of Willendorf, the oldest known Goddess statue. It has been linked to legends of the Holy Grail, thought to be an Emerald that fell from the sky out of Lucifer’s crown before he was cast from Heaven. In Czech lore, it was given as a betrothal gift to bring harmony to marital relations, and for centuries has been used in jewelry, religious items, and spiritual transformation.

What does Moldavite look like?

The shape of Moldavite is most commonly drop-like (round to very flattened), plate or disc-shaped, oval, spheroid, dumbbell-shaped, elliptical, rod-like, or spiral, all common in splash patterns of liquids. Moldavites from Bohemian localities are more drop-like, elongated, or rod-like, while Moravian stones are more spherical. Moldavite occurs most often in shades of deep forest green, though some are pale green or olive, and others, especially from Moravia, are greenish-brown.

Spiritual Properties of Moldavite

Moldavite has its own cosmic oversoul, which means that it is able to connect with Ascended Masters and cosmic messengers and pull those thought patterns down to our 3D plane. This special stone is a talisman sent to Earth for spiritual awakening, transformation, ascension and evolutionary growth. It facilitates a strong, clear, and direct connection between your consciousness and the Universal Source.

Resonating with Moldavite also creates an energy of spiritual protection. It has a high vibration and intense frequency and is one of the most powerful stones to use for psychic protection. Negative entities find it difficult to connect to your aura when you are wearing one on your body.

If you’re new to the crystal world, using Moldavite can be quite challenging. Moldavite's metaphysical properties are powerful and not everyone finds these stones comfortable to use, so start slowly. If you are just beginning to work with this stone, we advise having a grounding stone nearby.

When holding Moldavite for the very first time some people experience what is called the Moldavite Flush. This green gem can let off an intense warmth which sends a tingling sensation throughout the body and may lead the wearer to become light-headed, giddy, or have a big energy shift. For some people of course this can be overwhelming. Moldavite certainly takes some getting used to, but when you have made your connection with it, it can take you to places and along paths you never knew were possible.

Moldavite may not be a beginner stone but it is definitely a good investment for those looking to leap higher and further in a quicker time. Of course there are no shortcuts to the healing process, but for those ready to dig in and do the work, Moldavite is the stone to turn to. This is a gem that doesn’t allow you to sink into stagnancy or skip out on your full potential. It’s a stone that doesn’t just acknowledge that you want to make a change but one that goes ahead and gets you on the road to do just that. Moldavite is a rare and magical experience. Just make sure you strap in!

These green crystals are known for their action to stimulate highly beneficial occurrences of coincidence and synchronicity in your life.

Wearing Moldavite is one of the best ways to energetically protect yourself throughout the day, but it may be too much to wear all day, so start slow and pay attention to your energy and emotions. If you are starting to feel lightheaded, anxious, stressed or agitated, remove the Moldavite and try again the following day.

Moldavite is a wonderful tool to use during your meditation sessions. Its energetic vibration pulls down and in higher frequencies. You may see, hear, feel and/or understand messages you hadn't previously understood.

Why is Moldavite so expensive?

Moldavite is rare, precious, and is pricey because so much of it still sits too deep in the earth to harvest. Extracting Moldavite is complex work and refining it is also a delicate job which makes it even more special. Moldavite isn’t here en masse and it’s likely to go extinct as there is only a limited supply of it on our planet. 

Moldavite doesn't "grow" in the Earth like other crystals do. It came here from space, which means that what is here now is all there is. The Czech Republic has restricted mining of the stone which has also made it difficult to come by. Real Moldavite is expensive and will only get more expensive. 

If the price of Moldavite is very cheap, it's almost definitely fake. The term "too go to be true" is very appropriate when it comes to Moldavite.

How to tell real Moldavite from fake Moldavite

  • The price. If it's cheap, it's fake (although we have seen some sites selling fakes at higher prices now)
  • If the Moldavite you are examining is a bright vibrant green color, you are most likely looking at a fake Moldavite that was produced by melting green glass bottles.
  • Real Moldavite is sold by the gram or carat. Since it is such a special stone, even the tiniest pieces are sold. And size doesn't really matter with Moldavite. Even the smallest piece packs a punch!
  • If the Moldavite looks really wet or shiny, like melted glass, you are more than likely looking at a fake Moldavite.
  • Real Moldavite is a forest green color. There is no such thing as colored Moldavite (Red, Black, Orange etc.
