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 purposes.
 
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.

Now, Moldavite is becoming increasingly rare, you will likely have a hard time getting hold of some in your local crystal store or metaphysical shop (also, it’s insanely expensive)
Luckily though, Moldavite isn’t the only intense, intergalactic infinity stone that we have here on earth. Thankfully, there’s been a number of similar meteoric events elsewhere on the planet, for example, in the Libyan Desert you may stumble across some golden yellow looking tektites known as Libyan Desert Glass. However, our current favourite tektite has to be Tibetan Moldavite. A truly cosmic crystal
Though this stone is found across the world, the highest amounts of these stones have been found in the vast fields of China and Indo China. Tektite has been mentioned throughout history in various literatures and works. The Chinese named it the “Inkstone of the Thundergod”, while the Australian aborigines called it Maban or magic and associated it with good luck. Indians consider this stone as the sacred gem of Lord Krishna or the fire pearl. Tibetan monks revere this stone as the “Stone of Shambala”.
Legends about the magical powers of tektites are still current. Modern mystics believe that contact with moldavites will aid one’s spiritual evolution and that tektites are conducive to lucid dreaming. For an exploration of the spiritual properties of tektites, see Moldavite: Starborn Stone of Transformation, by Robert Simmons
The Holy Grail has been described both as a cup and a gemstone, one version says that it was a chalice ornamented by an “emerald that fell from the sky”. Legend has it that the Grail originated as an emerald that fell from the crown or forehead of Lucifer during the war in heaven.
Surely all these different cultures separated by thousands of miles couldn’t all be making this up? Perhaps there’s some truth in these coincidences after all.

Moldavite and Tektite Spiritual Properties | Metaphysical Uses | Crystal Healing Benefits |

Tektite can enhance your auric field’s vibrational level which can improve your psychic abilities, create more synchronicities and also enable a person to see beyond the five senses into the astral and other realms. This stone can also initiate contact with like minded people with similar energies and enhance feelings of kindness and friendship. Great for crystal therapists and Reiki.
 
Something a little more freaky though, Tektite is a high vibration stone which contains the energies of extraterrestrial streams of communication and information. This stone can be used to communicate with the extra terrestrials and other beings of the multiverse!
 
Moldavite and Black Tektite / Indochinite / Tibetan Moldavite all have very similar properties due to the way in which they were born into the world, though Black Tektite is considerably more abundant than Czech Moldavite and therefore easier to get hold of, for making gemstone jewellery. This will likely change though as once all the tektites have been found, that’s it!
 

 

 

 

 

TEKTITE ( TIBETAN MOLDAVITE)

Tektite reminds you that you are infact a spiritual, celestial being, born from the stars having a human experience.

It encourages spontaneity, positive impulses and detaches you from the anxiety associated with material world – reminding you that from the perspective of the vast infinite universe, your troubles really aren’t that big or terrible after all.

Tektite is a ridiculously high vibration crystal ( similar to Moldavite) that helps you lift up up and away from daily human concerns, cope better with survival fears, to connect more strongly to the Universe, and therefore aids with psychic abilities.
The best way to wear this is as a crystal necklace as it’s closer to your pineal gland or third eye.
We recommend that you pair this with a type of grounding stone so you don’t become too “spaced out”
We hope that you’ve found another piece of the puzzle to help with your spiritual adventure. If you wish to get hold of some of these incredible healing crystals for your gemstone collection, feel free to browse our holistic store for the perfect piece of gemstone jewellery or pocket stone for your journey.
 
With love and gratitude as always, fellow crystal fanatics.
