Moldavite

HISTORICAL INFORMATION

Moldavite was formed 15 million years ago during the impact of a giant meteorite in present-day Nordlinger Ries.

This greenish to brown-green variety of tektite was created with the heat of impact. Moldavite is believed that the meteorite melted with the earth's surface creating a combination of extraterrestrial matter with that of mother earth.

Some splattering of Moldavite was believed to melt by the impact with earth's atmospheric surface temperature and cooled while they were actually airborne. This rare stone is found in the Czech Republic, Germany, Moldova and Bohemia.

The total amount of Moldavite scattered around the world is estimated at 275 tons. There are now only four moldavite mines that are in full operation in the Czech Republic. It is predicted that in less than ten years from now commercial moldavite mining will come to an end. After this time, there will be virtually no appreciable amount of gem-grade moldavite left in the ground.

Moldavite is an olive-green or dull greenish vitreous substance possibly formed by a meteorite impact. It is one kind of tektite. It was named by A. Dufrnoy for the town of Moldauthein in Bohemia (the Czech Republic), where it occurs. It is sometimes cut and polished as an ornamental stone under the name of pseudo-chrysolite.

Moldavite has been associated with the legendary tone of the Holy Grail, and 'emerald' said to have fallen from the sky, as well as a talisman for the healing of the Earth.  Legend tells us that exposure to Moldavite stone was said to set the beholder upon the spiritual road to self discovery and personal enlightenment.  The same could be told of the mysterious green gemstone moldavite.
