Moldavite is undeniably a powerful stone. It was formed from a violent meteoric impact that struck Earth. This star born crystal fell from the heavens and landed near the Moldau River in Czechoslovakia approximately fifteen million years ago, it is believed that it struck with such ferocious impact that tonnes of earth exploded high into the atmosphere, with the mix of meteor and earth it super cooled and fell back to earth and formed the tektite that we now know today as Moldavite.
It is because of the extreme properties and intense vibrations of this stone that I feel the need to break down each section and explain the legends, properties and the uses of this incredible stone.
The Legends of Moldavite
- The Grail.
In religion it is believed that The Grail was the chalice that Christ drank from at the last supper, or the cup that was used by Joseph to collect the blood of Christ as He was hung on the cross.
Some believe that The Grail is not a cup but is in fact a stone, that fell to the earth from the crown of Lucifer as he was cast out of heaven by God.
Some theologians say that the stone was not in the Crown of Lucifer but was actually in his forehead, this has been linked with the Indian god Shiva, who has a pearl fixed on His brow, the third eye which is the eye of spiritual wisdom and knowledge. It is believed that that He uses the third eye to see beyond the apparent and protect the good from the evil. All evil and ignorance vanish as the third eye opens.
In legend it was the cup that was passed between King Arthur and the Knights of the round table during the feast of the Pentecost (one of the most ancient feasts of the Catholic church), to drink from The Grail would grant health, rejuvenation, nourishment success in battle and would guide the Knights on quests as this was the vessel that was the source of divine favour.
Another legend is that Moldavite was sent to King Solomon who then split the piece which he then formed into a ring.
In history the Grail was discovered and brought to Napoleon, it was said he was disappointed to find that it was made from green glass. It is only speculation as to whether it was in fact the Grail or a piece that was given to Napoleon so as to keep the real Grail hidden from him, whichever was the case it was passed down through the centuries and then disappeared during the second world war.
Other theories that exist equate Moldavite with the Philosophers Stone, the long sought source of wisdom for alchemists (the Grail of alchemists)
- What does Moldavite look like?
Moldavite is a tektite and unlike other tektites around the world which are usually black, dark brown and almost tar like in colour Moldavite is green, glassy and somewhat translucent. It is the only variety that can be cut or faceted as a gemstone. Raw unpolished pieces are almost lace like, wrinkled in a delicate formation.
The shape of Moldavite is quite unique, because of its molten origins they are often found ‘drop’ shaped and are round or flattened. Its colour is generally a deep forest green but can be found in olive or pale green also. It is because of its rarity that there are many excellent forgeries on the market, one way of recognising a fake is that you rarely get a large sized piece of Moldavite, if you do they will be incredibly expensive and not the cheap bargain you may think you are receiving.
Also Moldavite will not be perfect, it will have small bubbles in it and not perfect clarity like high end diamonds, other precious or semi-precious gems. I myself am not a specialist in recognising all fakes but I have followed this rule for Moldavite and have acquired myself a stunning piece of which I am particularly proud of.
Always buy from a reputable seller.
- Properties and Uses
Those that wear Moldavite or even just touch a piece may experience a number of different things, hot flushes (called the Moldavite Flush) and emanating heat, which may not just be felt by the person in contact with it but the people in their immediate surroundings.
It may take time to acclimatise a person to using Moldavite, it has an intense vibration and because of this it can make you feel light headed with a sense of not feeling grounded.
Moldavite is an incredibly powerful stone to meditate with, it can produce powerful visions, astral travel and out of body experiences. It is always very important to use a stone for grounding when meditating with Moldavite such as smoky quartz or black tourmaline.
There are many benefits with this stone, activating the dream state when sleeping with it, aiding in the rapid transformation of ones life, helping them to release things that do not serve their higher purpose.
Moldavite will increase a persons sensitivity to telepathy, intuition and an ability to receive and understand guidance and messages from the higher realms.
It helps foster a deeper level of compassion and understanding, increased clarity, energy cleansing, self discovery, visionary experiences, the list for Moldavite is expansive and I could genuinely go on a lot longer…….
- Moldavite Chakras
Moldavite is a powerful activator of all the chakras, particularly the heart, third eye and crown chakras.
When we rebalance the heart chakra it helps us understand our own needs and emotions, we can deal with all that comes with emotional relationships by understanding them and accepting change.
This is where our centre for perception and command is located, where we relate to ourselves. We are gifted the ability through this chakra to see both inner and outer worlds, it allows us clear thought and the gift of spiritual contemplation (dreams and visions)
This is where we are gifted unity and the selfless realisation that everything is connected at a fundamental level. We can experience serenity, joy and deep peace whilst experiencing a mystical oneness with everyone and all of nature.
Please be aware when beginning to use Moldavite it really is best to limit your usage until you become more acclimated to its vibrations. It is best to use a stone in conjunction with it, for example smoky quartz, black tourmaline or some other stone that can give you grounding.
There are those that go for it as such and will dive into wearing it with no other stone and for extended periods, for those of you that do you may feel physically drained, emotional a sense of not being entirely connected to what’s going on and can even experience nightmares.
That being said Moldavite is one of my favourite stones, it resonates with me like no other, I can hand on my heart say without any uncertainty it is most definitely a ‘celestial‘ stone.
