Moldavite is nicknamed “The Stone of Transformation” and is thought to have been created from a meteorite that crash-landed 14.8 million years ago. It is believed to have crashed in the present-day Czech Republic, more specifically, the Bohemian Plateau. As you can imagine, pieces are scattered throughout the area and are found almost at random. The impact itself was estimated at six trillion megatons and is believed to have passed completely through the Earth's crust into the planet's core.
The history of peoples' usage with the crystal goes back to 25,000 B.C. to the Neolithic people of Eastern Europe. It was believed to be used as amulets for fertility and fortune and later was also discovered as arrowheads. When the famed “Venus of Willendorf” (believed to be 30,000 years old) was discovered in 1908, Moldavite amulets and cutting tools were found alongside it. The most common, and probably most controversial theory about Moldavite, is it being the Stone on the Holy Grail. It was believed to be Emerald , but other people have different theories. The lore described how the holy grail was used to heal people and fully replenish and rejuvenate. Moldavite shares those very characteristics and has been proven to be as sought after just as much as Emerald throughout history.
Moldavite is a crystal that radiates energy, and upon first touch, you can feel the warmth it gives off. This warmth is so common that it has developed the term "Moldavite flush". The "flush" sends vibrations through the body and will imbue the user in a light tingly sensation. Some new users say it is a little over-whelming and will take it off or out of there pocket periodically as they feel “lightheaded”. Its usually recommended to always have a grounding stone nearby when you first start working with it to help avoid Moldavite being too strong. Over time, the strength will be less overwhelming as you get used to the stone.
Along with transformation, Moldavite carries properties assisting in protection, self-healing, and even cleansing. Some stones are known to assist with Moldavites energies in a number of ways. Using a Herkimer Diamond while working with Moldavite will assist and enhance third eye visionary experience. Combining these two will really amplify the strength and is highly recommended for use in meditation sessions. When working on self-healing, Rose Quartz is recommended to assist in opening the heart and allowing love and light to pour in. Moldavites strength makes this a must-have stone for those who are wanting to take the next step in transforming themselves.
