Moldavite is a stone of evolution, transformation, and connection. It is a natural silica-rich glass that was formed from the heat of an asteroid impact in Europe about 15 million years ago and is a part of the Tektite group.

Tektites, deriving from the Greek word "t─ôktos" meaning "molten" [10], are natural glasses formed from interplanetary collisions (especially from meteorites) and are full of silicon dioxide, aluminum oxide, and other metal oxides with an amorphous crystal structure. [9]

To this day, Moldavite can be found mostly in Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic, especially around the Moldau River (called the Vltava in Czech).

Balance, Connection, Empathy, Growth, Intuition, Protection, Self-Awareness, Transformation

 

Spiritually, Moldavite is balancing on all levels. Its strong energy is helpful for spiritual awakening as well as connection with your higher self, leading to strengthened intuition from past lessons and self-awareness for current situations. It can also prevent harmful outside forces and inner self-destructive impulses from interfering with personal evolutionary growth.

Emotionally and mentally, Moldavite can encourage you to dig deep into your emotions, release fixed ideologies that hinder growth, and integrate lessons that encourage growth. By inspiring you to deal with security issues (such as those around money and the future) and resurface buried memories, it can heal hidden traumas, open the heart to unconditional love, and bring surprising solutions to problems.

Physically, Moldavite is a powerful tool for diagnosis as it can highlight the causes of illnesses and boost recovery. It can also delay signs of aging, such as improving vision, cognitive function, and memory retention.

NOTE: Moldavite is a high-vibration stone [4], so its energy and properties are strong. The most common reaction that most people feel when first in contact with Moldavite is a tingling in their hand (which then spreads out into the body, especially in the chest around the heart chakra) and an intense heat flush in the face. This reaction is commonly called the "Moldavite Flush". [2]

 

Varieties of Moldavite

Indonesian Moldavite (Agni Manitite)

Agni Manitite, also called the Pearl of Fire, is a Tektite from the island of Java, Indonesia and is named from the ancient Sanskrit term “agni mani”, meaning “pearl of the divine fire” (hence it's alternate name).

Most of pieces of Agni Manitite are now underwater, resulting in this Tektite to be incredibly hard to come by. [7]
