A product of a large cosmic meteorite which vaporized when it struck the earth nearly 15 million years ago, creating the Reis Crater in Nordlingen, Germany. A small percentage of that vapor was catapulted back into the ionosphere by the impact explosion through the hole punched in the earth’s dense atmosphere. When this silica vapor reached the cold of outer space, it condensed and solidified. The dispersed mass descended again on the Earth in the form of molten drops earth creating a strewn field of lime green tektite, several hundred miles away in the Moldau River Valley in the Czech Republic. Thus the name “Moldavite,” a rare crystal of a bottle-green, translucent hue.
People who are able to perceive extra-sensory stimuli from around them are well familiar with the fact that Moldavite irradiates special types of energy. When placing the palm of their hand over Moldavite, they feel pleasant warmth, or mild twitching. After a while this feeling spreads from the palm to the wrist and further on, up to the elbow. Compared with other precious stones, the radiation coming from Moldavite is much more intensive. It is therefore used in alternative medicine as a transformer of energies, because due to its properties, it is able to gain energy from the cosmic space and transfer it to the organism.
One should look at moldavite as a stone which can both help us be comfortable in this physical existence and remind us that our Earth is part of a much larger system of consciousness. It is a stone of communication. It stimulates cooperation and transfer of energies between those of extra-terrestrial origins and those inhabiting earth. It has been suggested that for our Earth to fully heal itself new races of beings are needed, those with what might be described as a more cosmic view of existence. These souls, incarnating for the first time on this planet, and in some cases for the first time in a physical body, need a way to be grounded in the unique energies of this planet, and Moldavite is one of the helpers for this.
When placed on the third eye, Moldavite helps us to establish the cosmic connection. When placed on the heart, it teaches us to appreciate the gift of being here on Earth. Used on the crown chakra, it opens the self to higher spiritual energy. On a more practical level, 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 that needs to go. Because its energies are so powerful, it is a good idea to keep the Moldavite close to you when you first get a piece, and to meditate with it regularly. Whenever Moldavite is used in meditation, it is recommended that a grounding stone –black tourmaline, hematite, tiger’s eye, smoky quartz, red jasper or obsidian –be placed by the feet for grounding purposes, to keep you centered.
You will find in time that Moldavite influences you so that more and more things seem to be unnecessary and at the same time you may find it more and more important to be honest with both yourself and others. It is not necessarily so that the stone will enhance your communication with other worldly beings. However, enhanced communication on any level is a good beginning in general. Moldavite is a valuable stone which may open some doors for you to who knows what; maybe, even, an out of this world experience!
