Moldavite is a translucent green meteoric gem, found only in what is now the Czech Republic. Lately there have been other green tektites or imitations that are called "moldavite," but only the Czech moldavite is the "real thing." It is classed with the mysterious group of glassy objects called tektites, and it is believed to have fallen from the sky only once, about 14.8 million years ago. Prized by humans for tools and amulets some 25,000 years ago.
Moldavites are rare stones. Moldavites are among the most powerful gemstone tools for spiritual development and expansion of consciousness. They seem to engender an acceleration of one's inner growth and evolution. Hundreds of times people have described to us the rapid transformation of their lives which has come soon after they acquired Moldavite. Jobs, relationships, life styles or possessions which did not serve their highest paths were rapidly released, and the new, evolutionary forms of these same things appeared, drawn as if by magnetism. We have heard stories of visionary experience, chakra activation, energy cleansings and the discovery of personal destiny, all associated with the entrance of Moldavite in to one's life. Our own lives were similarly transformed when we discovered Moldavite in 1985, and because of our sense that Moldavite needed to be known by people everywhere, we started our company, Heaven and Earth.
It is interesting to note that Moldavite has been associated with the legendary Stone of the Holy Grail, an "emerald" said to have fallen from the sky, and a talisman for the healing of the Earth. In the legends, exposure to this Stone was said to set the beholder upon the spiritual road to self discovery and enlightenment. The same could be said of the celestial green gemstone Moldavite. Moldavite is capable of activating any and all of the chakras, though it most commonly resonates with the heart, third eye and crown chakras. Moldavite's energy tends first to move wherever it is most needed in the physical and etheric bodies, and then to center in the heart.
Moldavite harmonizes well with Quartz, Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Citrine, Danburite, Phenacite, Tanzanite, Azeztulite, Charoite, Larimar, Sugilite and dozens of other stones. It tends to supercharge and spiritualize the energies of whatever stones one uses with it. Faceted Moldavites are intensified by the cutting process. The forming of normally amorphous Moldavite into the precise geometric forms of gems focuses their energies in a way analogous to a laser. Moldavite earrings or rings place these powerful gems on meridian points of our subtle energy bodies, and the focused Moldavite energies flow throughout our whole system, raising our vibration. The same is even truer with pendants, which can be worn directly over the heart or throat chakras, or between them. Exposure to Moldavite begins a process of energetic resonance in which the vibratory rate of our whole being is increased. This may explain why many people find Moldavite to be so transformative.
Moldavite can be worn in jewelry and are also useful unset placed on the body or held during meditation, or arranged in grids with other stones. Moldavite stands out as the premier transformational gemstone of the mineral kingdom, and these gems will carry its beneficial energies to all those who are ready to receive them.
About 20 million years ago a meterorite shower fell in the Moldau Valley of Czechoslovakia. The result of this shower was moldavite, a rare crystal of a bottle-green, translucent hue. Although some people believe that it is a true meteorite (formed in outer space), it is more generally believed that it originates from rock that was struck by a meteorite and melted. According to the latter belief, moldavite combines extraterrestrial and terrestrial properties. It is generally considered to be one of the stones very important for this particular phase of human evolution. Many people feel that at this time there are countless souls who are not originally from Planet Earth, but from the Pleiades, Sirius, Orion, and other systems.
The belief fueling this thought is 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.
At one time in my life, I would have dismissed this as a fascinating theory. I have since learned that ideas which I used to dismiss without a second thought have become part of my belief system.
You don't have to believe this theory, however, to benefit from moldavite, for we can more generally look at it as a stone that can both help us be comfortable in physical existence and remind us that our Earth is part of a much larger system of consciousness.
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.
On a more practical level, many people have reported that moldavite helps to release all that is no longer needed for personal growth: old ideas: leftover emotional/mental habits, whatever you know on a deep level needs to go.
Because its energies are so powerful it's a good idea to keep it near you a lot when you first get one 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.
Special warning: You will find in time that more and more things seem to be unnecessary: the relationship you're hanging on to because it's comfortable and you don't like to be lonely, for example. You may find it more and more important to be honest with both yourself and others.
So even if you don't believe in extraterrestrial beings, moldavite is a valuable stone for you, but if you're just a bit curious, moldavite may open some doors. What these doors open to, well, you'll have to decide that.

Moldavite is known by healers and gem lovers across the world for its unusually powerful energetic and mystical properties. Moldavite energies fuse easily with the breath thus moldavite has a reputation for clearing oxygen related illness and discomfort. Others say that because of its high vibration, moldavite can be used to open, clear and balance any chakra. Some have reported people becoming anxious around moldavite; grounding is key to working with higher light stones.
The fluttering most people feel in their chest while holding moldavite happens because moldavite helps to stimulate and open the heart & thymus (spiritual heart) chakras. When kept close to the body, moldavite will also begin to remove energy blockages in all of the chakras. If you have had trouble opening your heart chakra and releasing bottled-up emotions, moldavite is the stone for you! Moldavite also helps you to develop unconditional love for yourself and others. Because moldavite can amplify thoughts and make emotions more intense, it’s best to use moldavite for healing purposes only when you are already healthy and fairly balanced. Moldavite is more a stone of activation and transformation than of healing.
Moldavite also resonates well with the crown chakra and it helps to accelerate spiritual growth. While wearing or holding moldavite, solutions to problems will become clear. It’s not uncommon to have an epiphany or two while working with moldavite! If you struggle with finding your purpose in this life, I recommend carrying or wearing a moldavite as it helps you to “remember” why you are here. Moldavite will often bring repressed emotions bubbling to the surface so that they can be either acknowledged, integrated or released. This helps to facilitate emotional healing and spiritual growth.
