Moldavite is a high frequency green stone made from tektite. It falls under the category of glass, and was formed under a meteorite impact 15 - 20 million years ago in Czech Republic. Moldavite is a dark green stone with inclusions and usually will have a rather lumpy texture. The rock metamorphosed by the heat of impact created a strew field of Moldavite in the two, mostly rural, areas of Bohemia and Moravia. Farmers often turned up the stones when plowing their fields, while other specimens worked their way to the surface after spring thaw or heavy rains in the fall. More recently collectors have "mined" for gem grade and museum quality specimens by sifting and digging through loose sands and gravels. Moldavite has a rich history, prized since the Stone Age and used not only for arrowheads and cutting tools, but as a spiritual talisman and amulet of good fortune, fertility and protection. It was found in the archeological site of the Venus of Willendorf, the oldest known Goddess statue, and has been linked to legends of the Holy Grail, thought to be an emerald that fell from the sky out of Lucifer's crown before he was cast from Heaven.

Moldavite is a useful stone for star children and sensitive souls who find it difficult being in incarnation on the earth, and who cannot adjust to suffering and deep emotions. Placed on the heart, Moldavite uncovers the reasons and purpose for why one is here, and eases the "homesickness" for those whose origin is not Earth.
Theres a lot that goes into healing and expanding the heart chakra, many stones like rose quartz and green aventurine will focus on the love aspect, moldavite focuses more on tuning into a love frequency and clearing any negative energies from your chakra. Green crystal energy is used to resolve blockages and to re-balance the Heart Chakra, helping us understand our own needs and emotions clearly. Trauma, pain, grief, and so many more consuming emotions will usually cling to our auras, trying to move into our bodies. Since moldavite is so powerful it can oversee all this and start to transform your heart into a healing center for your body, mind, and spirit.
Physical and Spiritual Symptoms
Part of the reason why people are nervous to work with this stone is because of its side effects. Since moldavite is such a high frequency stone it can cause physical, spiritual, and emotional reactions.
Physical symptoms include: light-headedness, tingling, headaches, tight chest, and an experience called the “moldavite flush” where a warm flush of energy courses through your body.
Spiritual symptoms include: nightmares (if sleeping with), drained energy, a sense of anxiety, and an overwhelmed mind-set. In some cases the heart chakra is activated, experienced as a pounding pulse, followed by sweating or flushing of the face, and an emotional release that may range from laughter to tears.
Emotional symptoms include: emotional turmoil brought to surface, if you work with it for too long it can cause a bad mood or dark thoughts, and repressed memories may come up. All of these reactions should not an expectation, if your body or mind aren’t in the right space for working with moldavite then it’ll let you know.
As you can see, moldavite packs a punch. If you’re working with it and its too much to handle, gradually lean into it. Take breaks, don’t carry it with you all the time, or learn to work with it in smaller increments. Moldavite is such a consuming frequency that it may effect your emotions in an overwhelming way, it’s okay to take it slow.
The Mighty Reputation
Moldavite has been around for a very long time, due to social media it has gotten more attention. People have taken it into their own hands to spread information based off personal beliefs and experiences. People have said it has caused physical pain, heartbreak, and loved ones dying. This stone may be a powerful stone but a crystal will not activate this kind of energy without the intention being set. One of the main properties of moldavite is that anything that’s holding you back from being your highest self will be removed, people have taken that and applied it to significant others leaving or feeling a sense of self doubt. Because it’s such a high frequency stone it can take a toll on you in many ways, but the reputation it holds is taken too far and has caused a fear of the stone itself. Lastly, if your considering working with Moldavite and your intimidated or nervous; simply leave it to the universe. If Moldavite is meant for you, the opportunity will present itself.
Real v.s Fake Moldavite
Real moldavite is full of flaws and inclusions, it will also vary in different shapes and colors. These spots will only appear if the stone has been cut, polished, and/or faceted. Raw moldavite will have an etched texture and can cut like the real glass it is. Fake moldavite varies in color and textures, it can be black, light green, smooth, or overly lumpy. A big part of deciphering between the two is energy, moldavite is such a high frequency stone that it will give off physical reactions. Fake moldavite has a very stagnant energy or none at all which makes it all the easier. Another way to tell is pricing, real moldavite comes from one place, making it a very expensive stone. If you look at Etsy most moldavite will either be around $30 or $200, fake moldavite will usually be cheap or it’ll be visually obvious.
