Moldavite: History, Uses, and Meaning

Amanda Beltz


Simply taking a look at Moldavite, you need not be told that it is a stone of greatness. Moldavite is engraved of spiritual fire. This is not any ordinary stone, but one, destined for a purpose. This mysterious green jewel is star-born.

Moldavite was formed from a violent meteoric impact of nature with Mother Earth. Carved by flame and force, falling from the heavens, Moldavite returned to the surface of the earth transformed as a glass of amazing delicacy and grace ready to serve humankind.



Moldavite is a member of the Tektite group of natural glasses. Moldavite was formed from interplanetary collisions. Tektite was derived from the Greek word Tektos, meaning "molten," Tektites are glassy mixtures of aluminum oxide, silicon dioxide, and various other metallic oxides.

There have been many meteoric impacts documented over time. Their impact leaves a crater on the surface of the earth. Materials are then deposited around the surrounding areas. Moldavite was formed as a result of intense meteorite showers which happened as far back as 15 to 20 million years ago. The most prized specimens of Moldavite are the clear green and deeply grooved pieces. Moldavite is considered the only gem on the surface of the earth with its origin traced back to space.

Moldavite was found in the Bohemian sites close to the Moldau River Valley, North of Prague, Czech Republic. They are believed to have resulted from a meteorite crater in Germany. As a result of this, they were named after the location and the surrounding environment.
