Moldavite has been used for thousands of years as a healing crystal. Unfortunately, many people have experienced spiritual dangers when working with this crystal.
Like a person who told us they had nightmares while Moldavite sat on their nightstand…
Or another person who said they couldn’t stop sobbing the first time they held Moldavite.
Moldavite has incredibly powerful energy, and it’s important to know how it works so you can be prepared when you use this crystal for the first time.
Let’s learn how and why this Tektite stone is so powerful.
What is Moldavite?
Moldavite has a very interesting history, which is why it’s such a powerful—and often touted as dangerous—stone. Moldavite is an ancient green Tektite-type stone that formed 15 million years ago from a meteorite impact, somewhere near modern day Czech Republic.
It is said to have strong extraterrestrial and cosmic energy. The combination of this energy with Earth’s energy makes Moldavite a very powerful healing crystal.
Identifying fake Moldavite stones
Moldavite is becoming increasingly scarce as demand for it grows. Unfortunately, the market is flooded with counterfeit Moldavite stones and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find real ones. To ensure you’re getting the real deal, it’s important to thoroughly research any Moldavite stones you plan to purchase online. Here are some tips:
- Look for imperfections: Real Moldavite stones are rough and imperfect. Look with bubbles, dips, and divots throughout the stone. If your Moldavite appears glass-like, it could be fake.
- Check the price tag: Moldavite is expensive. A 15g piece of Moldavite usually sells for upwards of $500. It’s a very expensive and rare stone, especially since it’s only available to harvest in the Czech Republic. If you’re finding very cheap Moldavite, it’s likely fake.
- Hold it in your hand: If the Moldavite you want to buy is fake, you wont feel anything when you hold it in your hands. Note: If you’re a beginner with crystals and spirituality, you might find it challenging to tap into your feelings so this method isn’t foolproof.
Dangers of Moldavite
Moldavite has gained a reputation as a powerful, yet potentially hazardous healing stone. Let us examine the various risks associated with the use of Moldavite so you know whether or not you wish to add this stone to your collection.
1. Rapid change you may not be ready for
Have you ever heard about the “Moldavite Effect”? It’s a powerful burst of energy that can manifest in many forms. These manifestations are usually experienced by people who might have little experience working with Moldavite or don’t know how to activate Moldavite properly.
The effects of Moldavite can range from highly positive to negative and may even manifest as a combination of both. However, it should be noted that despite the various forms and intensities of these effects, the ultimate outcome is always positive.
For example, if you’re working a job you enjoy, but don’t love, Moldavite might align things up so you can find a job you absolutely love. But in order to get the job you love, you first need to let go of your current one. Which could mean getting fired or feeling an impulsive need to quit on the spot. See how it works? While the possibility of getting fired from a job you enjoy seems awful, the outcome of obtaining a job you truly love is worth it in the end.
2. It’s draining for those who aren’t in tune with their spiritual side
Moldavite can drain you if you aren’t in tune with your spirituality just yet. And you might not know when it’s time to tuck your Moldavite away to protect your energy.
But as you get familiar with your energy, your vibrations, and how to use crystals, you’ll be able to recognize when Moldavite is too intense, and when it’s time to put the stone away to save your energy.
3. Moldavite amplifies energies from other stones and people
Moldavite will also increase energies from other stones and other people, even if that energy is negative. When using Moldavite, only use it in conjunction with other crystals where you are familiar with the crystal and want to increase its strength, and only use it near people who are in a positive headspace.
If you are placing another crystal or object on top of your Moldavites, it is recommended that you place a piece of black tourmaline under the object or crystal being placed on the Moldavites. This action will help mitigate any negative energies or entities that may be directed towards you.
On the other hand, if you want to use Moldavite with another person, make sure both parties are in a calm and positive state of mind.
3 signs Moldavite is working and impacting you
Here are three ways to know if Moldavite is working:
1. You feel intense energy
You’re going to feel intense energy in your life from Moldavite. Unlike healing stones that promote calmness, you’ll be buzzing with energy. You might experience physical symptoms like heat radiating from holding your piece of Moldavite, racing heart, rapid breathing and sweating.
2. Your life is rapidly changing
Once you start using Moldavite, you can expect rapid changes to occur in your life. Moldavite invites these changes to occur whether you like them or not, so you need to be mentally ready for any major life changes that might come your way as a result of using Moldavite crystals.
3. You feel emotional
Since Moldavite works with your Heart chakra, you’ll feel an incredible surge of emotions and energy. These emotions aren’t always negative. You could have a wonderful experience with Moldavite and feel intense happiness.
But even intense happiness can still be draining, so it’s good to remember to take breaks when using Moldavite healing stones as you can quickly wear yourself out, especially if you are an HSP or an empath.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that Moldavite is not meant to replace or prevent any medical treatment. One should always consult their doctor if they are looking for a natural remedy for illness or disease. If you are experiencing physical symptoms such as dizziness, headaches, nausea, pain, fatigue, etc., it is recommended that you consult your doctor.
Stories of people who have experienced Moldavite’s dangers and blessings
In our quest to unearth even more Moldavite dangers, we spoke with many different people and heard from various accounts of what their experience was with Moldavite.
Here’s what some of them said:
- “The first time I used Moldavite I had a mental breakdown of sorts. I just remember feeling all my emotions come out.”
- “At the time, I didn’t know the wood amplified Moldavite. I had just picked up my stone and placed it on a wooden nightstand next to my bed. Here’s where things get weird: as I was trying to fall asleep, I began to hear voices. I wasn’t dreaming, I was fully awake. I tried to fall asleep and ended up having the worst sleep of my life complete with incredibly vivid dreams and nightmares. I woke up the next morning and decided to look up Moldavite and realized I had accidentally amplified it through the wood. Needless to say, I keep Moldavite out of my room when I sleep!”
- “I actually have always had amazing experiences with Moldavite! I use Moldavite when I need a quick boost, I never wear it for the full day otherwise I feel drained. It amplifies my mood and uplifts me. I usually only hold it for 30 seconds per session.”
- “I have a super small Moldavite pendant. When I first got it, I wore it over my Heart chakra. It kind of made me feel dizzy… It had major intense energy but otherwise, nothing crazy happened. In fact, I’ve felt incredible since using Moldavite!”
- “I bought myself a clear quartz and moldavite energy dome and a moldavite bracelet for my boyfriend. I couldn’t understand why I was getting so depressed until my boyfriend told me it’s the moldavite. If you’re not ready to deal with unwanted emotions don’t get it because it’s intense. I have never felt so hopeless and anxious before.”
- “I recently bought a small Moldavite pendent. When I held it for the first time it caused a pain in my palm. As soon as I put it on my mind started racing non stop, I felt more and more anxious. After 3 days I took it off an put it in a container in the bed room. Since then I have been having intense dreams and my heart rate has been up for days. Still feeling anxious. I’m not sure if this is for me.”

Which chakras does Moldavite activate?
Out of our seven chakras, Moldavite holds the strongest influencer on the Heart chakra. The Heart chakra is responsible for balancing our emotional bodies. This is why Moldavite can be so intense emotionally as it works intensely on the Heart chakra.
Your Heart chakra also helps you understand what you want and what you don’t need. When you unblock your Heart chakra, you’ll feel intense energy around specific people, places, and things. You’ll suddenly know exactly what’s serving you and what needs to go. In the story from above about the person who left a five-year relationship after wearing Moldavite, it was because the stone gave them the clarity they needed. They realized their current partner was not serving them.
For some, this can be incredibly scary. You might not be ready for such sudden and changes to your path. In which case, you shouldn’t use Moldavite.
