#WednesdayWonders – #Gemstones #Moldavite

Welcome to another stroll through the fascinating world of gemstones and their fabulous properties!

Today, I’d like to introduce a specimen that I’ve had for many years and just love it (of course, I love all of my rocks.) 🙂

There are many theories about how and when Moldavite was created, but the most likely theory is it formed from the heat from an asteroid impact around 15 million years ago. After this event, the hot glass was sent flying across Europe where it is mined today. 

It is a dark green color and parts of it are translucent. Moldavite is a good stone that is used for those who want to magnify the vibrations of their other types of crystals.

It is good for protection, healing, and cleansing. It is also believed to help awaken the Chakras and prevent negativity.

Moldavite possesses powerful metaphysical properties and if you gaze into a more translucent piece of the gemstone while you’re meditating you will find that it is far simpler to connect with the higher powers in the universe and in your higher self.

It is believed that moldavite has the ability to enable you to surpass linear time. For that reason, many individuals find the stone useful when they would like to engage in a past life or explore the path that their soul is taking in any direction of time. Healers use moldavite to assist with removing emotions and clear the aura of any undesirable baggage from a past life.

Finally, moldavite is believed to raise a sense of self-awareness and assist people who are looking to uncover emotions or feelings which keep them stuck in unhappy situations in the present. Those people will be able to uncover those things that are trapping them in an unhappy present and move forward.

It is good for the crown, third eye, and heart chakras.

When someone picks up a moldavite crystal, the most common reaction – which most people feel first – is a tingling in their hand, which then spreads out into the body. Frequently, the reaction is then felt in the chest, in the vicinity of the heart chakra, and then your face as an intense heat flush. 

I have a small piece of Moldavite in a bottle of essential oils and use a tiny dab often.

What do you think? Is this a stone that you own? When I bought mine many years ago, I paid around $30 for it and that, to me, is expensive. I have no idea what they sell for nowadays.

    1. What a wonderful way to use your stones and to enjoy them! Also, they stay fully charged outside under the sun and moon. Thank you so much for your comment, Sandra!


  1. I like rocks and minerals, but as rocks and minerals. This one got me on one of my weird tangents. I think moldivate, should be a word. Like when you should be doing something. You want to be doing something, but you moldivate instead.

  2. I heard the name before but I don’t think I really knew anything about it. That’s amazing what powers that stone has that it gives you that instant tingeling. A very strong and deep effect. I love that.

  4. A friend gifted me a small piece of Moldavite a couple years ago. It’s an extremely powerful stone. When I first held it in my palm, the heat was intense! I recall having this wonderful increase of energy all day. I treasure her gift and thoughtfulness. Another great post, Jan. Thank you! 🙂

    1. Meditation is such a wonderful way to keep life balanced, Olga. There are so many tools out there to enhance our experience and this little stone is one of them. Thank you for stopping by!


  5. Jan, I bought a beautiful piece of polished Moldavite in a Roswell, NM rock shop last year and it’s in the shape of a heart. I just love it. It’s so beautiful and green is my color. 🙂 The one I have has swirls of different intensity of green with light and dark mixed together. It’s just gorgeous. And I love how it was formed by a meteorite. Makes it even more exciting to own. Love you, sister.

    1. If the piece you are talking about is the one I saw at your house, what you have is Malachite, not Moldavite. While Moldavite can be polished, it is rarely ever smooth. I will be doing a post on Malachite and you can compare the two to see exactly what you have. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment today. We are rock hounds from way back, sister, and no stopping now! 🙂 Love you!

      1. Okay, I know you’re right. I’m not as proficient with the names of rocks as you are. And I mostly buy what appeals to me and look at the properties later. Ha! Rocks are a lot cheaper than precious gemstones. 🙂 I love anything pretty.

  6. Thanks, Jan, for introducing this stone to me. I hadn’t heard of its properties and don’t have one, but now I’m curious. I love how you have stored it. 😊

    1. This is one for you to browse the rock shops for, Gwen. I think you will recognize it instantly because of its bumpy exterior and unique green color. The tiny piece in the bottle is separate from my larger piece but I do love using the infused oil. Thank you for stopping by!

    1. I rarely ever pay that much for a single stone, but this one really called to me that day when I picked it up. My hand did tingle and still does when I hold it, especially after I charge it under the moon. Thank you for stopping by, Staci!
