What are Tektites and Moldavites?
Today we will explore one of our favourite crystals, the mystical and powerful Tektites and Moldavite.
Moldavite was one of the first stones we encountered on our healing journey, though we soon discovered that it was immensely intense, even for someone not sensitive to crystal energy.
These gorgeous green space rocks are known as Tektites, coming from the greek “tektos” which translates as molten.
It was named this due to the way it forms; from the superheated molten silicon created during a meteoric impact, thousands of years ago. Imagine the power of a hundred nuclear explosions, contained in these vibrant green, alien looking pieces of crystal. Perhaps that’s the reason it’s so transformative to wear Moldavite for crystal healing
Some people, and this includes even those that are complete cynics and naysayers of the healing properties of crystal kingdom, will report feelings of a flushed face and a tingling sensation when they first hold a piece of moldavite, regardless of the size of the stone, it’s still incredibly potent.
It helps to combine Moldavite with a grounding stone such as Black Obsidian, Smoky Quartz or our favourite: Black Tourmaline.
This will help ground the extra terrestrial properties of Moldavite or Tektite to the earth, so you don’t wander around like a light headed zombie all day, incapable conversing with humans.
It’s especially powerful for clearing blockages in the etheric or spiritual body, and therefore the physical too, as whatever happens to the spirit, happens to the physical manifestation.
Though it’s important to note, that when wearing moldavite crystal jewellery, or carrying it as a tumblestone
or pocket stone, that you should begin with small doses.
For example, wearing the crystal pendant
or ring for a few hours each day until you are accustomed to the healing energy.
