Moldavite: Facts, Safety, and Preparation Before Use

Last Updated on

Have you heard all of the intense stories surrounding Moldavite lately and want to learn a bit more about this mystical stone for yourself?

It’s no doubt that Moldavite has grown in popularity this year due to the incredible powers it has to induce rapid change in someone’s life.

But what makes this stone so magical? And where does it come from?

Today, we’re exploring everything you need to know about Moldavite.

What Is Moldavite?

To understand what Moldavite is, you have to know what a tektite is.

A tektite is a type of impact glass crystal that is formed from a small meteorite hitting the earth.

When the meteorite hits, the heat from the impact is hot enough to melt minerals. These minerals then flow together in a molten stream, pooling up into one place. When the minerals cool down, they harden into a tektite. Moldavite is a tektite.

Knowing this, it’s easy to understand why Moldavite is so rare and expensive: once it’s gone, you won’t be able to make any more of it.

I mean, unless another meteorite hits the Earth, but if that happens, we might not be around to harvest the Moldavite from such a powerful impact.

Back to tektites.

Most tektites look brownish-black in color, but Moldavite is unique because it can range from forest green to a blueish green hue. If you ask me, Moldavite is more aesthetically pleasing than most other tektites due to its beautiful colors. The size is usually small and can range from a few micrometers to 10 centimeters in length, and the larger the Molvaite, the more expensive it will be.

Moldavite was discovered sometime before 1786 in the town of Týn nad Vltavou in Czech Republic. It was introduced to the geologist community by Josef Mayer in a lecture at Prague University. To this day, 99% of all Moldavite comes from that particular region. It can also be found in Germany, but at a much lower rate.

On the Moh’s scale of hardness, it can range from 5.5 to 7OH, so it’s very comparable to standard glass. The texture is mostly rough, but sometimes it can have a smooth side if it has been resting against another rock for a long time.

There are plenty of fake Moldavite stones on the market, and it’s very hard to tell the difference unless you have a microscope. Real Moldavite has sporadic air bubbles in it. The bubbles are really random in shape and size, and are very difficult to artificially create.

If you’re using Moldavite for spiritual reasons, fake Moldavite will have no effect on you, whereas real Moldavite can make physical symptoms manifest.

Moldavite Healing Properties

There are many healing properties of Moldavite. Some people use it to dampen their emotions so they can handle past trauma better, and others will use it as a rejuvenation stone to ward off aging.

Some effects of Moldavite can be a bit extreme to some individuals, especially if they’re open to cosmic energies. While Moldavite will never harm you, it’s still worth mentioning the effects it can have. For example, if you’re sensitive to energy, you might want to keep it away from you while you’re sleeping.

Some of the sensations you can feel while in contact with Moldavite include warmness, energy flowing through you, and joyous emotions. It’s especially effective for those suffering anxiety, post-traumatic stress, and depression.

The stone can also soothe any doubts you have about yourself, and encourage positivity. So even if you’re not particularly depressed or stressed, the properties of Moldavite can enhance your overall life experience.

Moldavite has also been known to help those who feel out of place on our planet feel more like they belong. It dampens the feeling of homesickness for those who feel they don’t belong on Earth.

A really big selling point for Moldavite is that it can help you align your chakras through meditation. This makes it particularly useful for those who are trying to align their energies with the cosmos in such a way that it brings about positive change to their life.

The gemstone is sometimes used by metaphysicians to diagnose and, where appropriate, treat a disease or energy imbalance in your life. Because of this, it can be used in tandem with other crystals to heal various ailments.

Another huge benefit of Moldavite is its ability to ward off negative energies around you. Negative energies affect us every day, in a multitude of situations. So having Moldavite on you throughout the day can be a huge benefit to those who spend a lot of time in unnatural environments such as offices or boardrooms.

It can also help with memory retention and slow down the aging process for the brain. Another unfortunate reality is that as we age, we become more prone to degradation in a myriad of ways, but Moldavite is really good at hindering this natural process.

How To Use Moldavite

Even though Moldavite is technically a type of glass, it acts as a crystal through and through as it carries great amounts of cosmic energy.

Healing crystals are a little bit like cameras into our souls, and just like a camera, Moldavite captures your energy and reflects it back into you. Because of the repeating properties of Moldavite, you’re going to want to make sure you’re in a relatively positive mood before interacting with it. If you touch it while you’re in a negative mind space you may accidentally charge it with negative energy. This is the opposite of what you want to do.

When you first obtain your Moldavite gemstone, you want to take it to a well-lit area, preferably outside in the sunlight. The environment should be more natural, and you should be far away from any electronic interference that might affect your natural energies.

When you find a suitable spot, take your Moldavite out of whatever container you’re keeping it in and hold it in your dominant hand.

See in your minds-eye the energies flowing from the earth, through your body, and into the stone. The energy should be viewed as white light, and it should be as pure as possible when you envision it. Congratulations, you’re beginning to activate your Moldavite crystal! When it’s activated there are a plethora of things you can do with it to increase your healing experience.

A common thing to do with Moldavite after activating it is to put it in jewelry. You can wear it as a pendant on a necklace, or you can have it embedded into a ring.

There is a simple ritual you can do to remove any negative energy from the Moldavite upon acquiring it. Again it involves direct sunlight, but the actions you take in this ritual will be slightly different than simply activating it.

First, you want to cleanse it. This step is optional, but I like to cleanse every crystal I get just for peace of mind.

To cleanse Moldavite, find a well-lit area, preferably outdoors. Instead of holding the crystal in your dominant hand, you should place it upon the ground in direct sunlight. Sit in front of the stone and close your eyes. In your mind’s eye, envision the dark, negative energy swirling around the crystal.

Understand that this energy is unhealthy to any who come into contact with it. Positive energy radiates from the earth, so attempting to expel the negative energy down into the earth would be harmful to the planet. Instead, see the dark energy dissipate into the atmosphere. Let the sun purify the crystal. The beams of light will chase away any darkness that the crystal holds.

Once the dark energy has been cleansed, make sure you inject your own light energy into the crystal. At this point, your Moldavite is ready for everyday use.

One more thing of note; the crystals should be recharged at least once a month. You can do this by putting it under the moonlight during a full moon. There are also a few other ways you can cleanse the crystal if you’re not close to a natural spot.

  • Sea Salt: Sea-Salt has a lot of cleansing properties. You can leave the Moldavite buried in a ritual bowl over night to cleanse it.
  • Sea Water: Sea water has sea-salt, so the process is pretty much the same. Just submerge the Moldavite in the sea water overnight.
  • Purified Running Water: Running water has long been known as a purifying agent. Don’t use tap water, Buy a bottle of purified water and pour it over your Moldavite until the bottle is emptied.
  • Quartz- Quartz is another crystal that is known for its cleansing properties. Lay the quartz on top of your Moldavite over night to dispel the evil that resides within it.

Is Moldavite Safe?

While some people consider Moldavite a dangerous crystal, I believe it’s perfectly safe, especially when you prepare yourself before using it.
