The Origin of Moldavite
Moldavite is a star-child of the heavens. It's beloved by crystal enthusiasts and healers worldwide.
This green beauty is a tektite which is a glass rock. It is speculated to have been formed when a meteorite hit the earth approximately 15 million years ago. This meteorite hit in what was formerly Czechoslovakia but what is present day Nördlinger Ries. Pieces of it melted and were thrown over an area of about 250 miles in Moldavia near the river Moldau which is where moldavite gets its name.
The manner of dispersal that the meteorite spread out is called a strewnfield. These are elliptical-shaped areas that contain the debris of two or more meteorites of the same type and can be as large as several miles.
Moldavite is known for it's gorgeous translucent forest green color but can also appear lighter. There have also been yellow and brown specimens found. It's sold in rough and gem-cut form but it's becoming more scarce and therefore more pricey. Because of its reported celestial origins, spiritual seekers have this stone high on their list of crystals to add to their collection.

A Combination ET and Mother Earth Stone
As you can imagine, moldavite is a popular meditation tool for those seeking to communicate with life on other planets. The term Starseed is used to describe someone whose soul did not originally incarnate on earth but originated from another planet or plane. While it may sound cliché, people who believe themselves to be Starseeds may find moldavite the stone to call home with and find out who they really are.
But moldavite isn't just for Starseeds since the meteorite combined with the earth to create moldavite. Therefore, it represents a blending of earth and celestial material. It doesn't matter where you believe you're from, this is still an excellent stone for otherworldly communication and getting in contact with earth divas, faeries, and other earth spirits. It's also good to meditate with for those who feel all alone in the universe.
It has the reputation of accelerating situations in your life that need to be brought to a head. Moldavite also raises vibratory rates on a personal and global level. It helps us expand our awareness of the reality we're experiencing but also to understand different realities and dimensions.

Healing Attributes of Moldavite and Tektites
Moldavite brings inter-dimensional awareness and compassion for others. It helps one feel less apprehensive about the future and money matters by understanding the larger picture. You may also gain insight into why your experiencing problems in your life.
Because moldavite is a tektite, it shares those metaphysical attributes. Tektites bring balance to a person's energy field. They help us let go of bad experiences that still affect us emotionally. They also help open your eyes to what the truth is in situations you're going through and whether it's in your best interest to continue on the path you're on or not.
Tips for Meditating with Moldavite
While grounding and centering is good to do with any crystal meditation, it's especially important when meditating with moldavite. If you aren't used to grounding and centering, try to practice a technique you prefer for several days before you add moldavite to the meditation. This will help to ensure you don't feel too ungrounded with this powerful crystal.
Because the third eye chakra is known as the psychic chakra, many people like to meditate with moldavite placed on their forehead in the area of their third eye. But this may very intense for some people to begin with. If so, then holding the crystal in your hand or laying it on the heart chakra can be just as effective.
You may also want to keep a crystal journal and record any impressions you receive. This is a good idea with any stone but especially important when you're trying to make otherworldly contact. You may receive insights that don't seem to make much sense but will begin to over the course of several meditation sessions with moldavite.
