Ah, Moldavite. It goes by many names. The Gemstone that fell to Earth; “Space Glass.” This dark, deep green tektite fell to earth as an asteroid about 15 million years ago in a location that we now know as the Czech Republic. To the naked or untrained eye, it doesn’t look like much in its raw form: dark, deep grooves of matte space rock, creating caverns and little worlds within each piece. Some moldavite is polished and faceted, and then you can really see the green colors shine. But the raw material is what the spiritual community works with the most – raw, unadulterated, genuine, natural pieces, found just as they are (not cut or broken by human hands) as when they fell millions of years ago.
Before I go much further, a short disclaimer is necessary with this stone: Moldavite is NOT for everyone. It took me a long while to feel confident with my own work and experience with it to feel like I could responsibly sell it in the shop. All joking or hyberbole aside, moldavite is powerful stuff. Many say they get a warm, tingling in their hands the first time they hold it – this has been such a common phenomenon that it received the nickname “the Moldavite Flush.” Other people report feeling nauseated or dizzy when they hold it or spend too much time with it in their aura (myself included!). Most people, the ones that know this is the stone for them, feel enlivened, energetic, awake and clear as well. It is said that for these people, being in the presence of moldavite feels like “going home.” For me, wearing my moldavite ring (which I wear daily) is like having my cup of crystal coffee in the morning. If I forget to put on my ring, I feel more sluggish and foggy throughout the day. I call it my “crystal coffee.” The only time I don’t wear moldavite is when I’m sleeping (though I do occasionally wear it to bed, as it does facilitate incredibly powerful dreams and lucid dreaming). But I will take it off if I’m sick or ill, recovering and needing rest.
Owning and working with moldavite is a very big responsibility. More so than absolutely any other crystal, gemstone or fossil. When I first got my moldavite ring, I wore it for three days straight (even to sleep) and I had the most incredible and vivid dreams, visions, and my psychic abilities were blown open. Moldavite will blow open your higher chakras, in some cases, even open you too much and invite things you may not want or may not be ready for. Moldavite will connect you with your shadow self and fast forward your spiritual journey. Many report that their experiences working with moldavite took their spiritual journeys on the fast track, getting them further along on their path in a short amount of time. Others say that moldavite helped melt away the things that were no longer serving them – dissolving toxic relationships or jobs, helping them move, grow, and change with rapidity.
If you are serious about purchasing and working with moldavite, please do your research first. I highly recommend reading the book “Moldavite: Starborn Stone of Transformation” by Kathy Warner and Robert Simmons.
A word about the price:
Moldavite is priced by the gram. Most gems and minerals are priced by the kilo, but certain stones, like moldavite, are so rare, and so hard to find (and have so many manufactured fakes), and so special they are simply more expensive. I consider this an investment in my spiritual practice, like buying a new yoga mat, or singing bowl. I guarantee these Moldavite pieces to be 100% completely GENUINE. There is A LOT of fake “moldavite” on the market, and this is not it. I am sourcing the moldavite for the shop from the same vendor from which I source my own personal pieces and who has a stellar reputation in the gem and mineral world.
This listing is for ONE (1) .925 Sterling Silver + Moldavite Spiral pendant from those pictured. Each one is beautifully made, wonderfully weighted, and the crowning jewel of each spiral is a faceted genuine moldavite gemstone in the center! They are stamped .925 sterling on the bail, and measure approximately 1 inch in diameter (not including the bail).
Chain not included; listing is for the pendant only.
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered.
