Moldavite is a vitreous silica rock that can be found in dark green color and blue-green. It comes under the category of glass and was formed by a meteorite impact 15 million years ago. Moldavite is a form of tektite and is a 5.5-7 on the Mohs hardness scale. The meaning of Moldavite is transformation, fortune, and protection.

The Stone of Transformation
- Made by a meteorite colliding with earth
- Found in the Czech Republic
- Highly spiritual and energetic
For almost 15 million years Moldavite has made its home here on Mother Earth. Born from a meteorite that is believed to have crashed into the Bohemian plateau (AKA the modern-day Czech Republic), the impact was believed to have been so fierce that it smashed straight through and into the earth’s core leaving pieces of molten rock scattered for miles. Later this rock hardened into Moldavite - a rare forest green gem that can be found along the Moldau river. As Moldavite has been with us for millions and millions of years, it has passed through the hands of our ancestors. Even as far back as neolithic times, Moldavite was used as a good luck stone especially when it came to matters of fertility. Archaeologists have found cutting tools alongside Moldavite amulets dating back to 25,000 BC out in eastern Europe. And to this very day, we still adore Moldavite for the magic it can bring us.
There was also a rumor that Moldavite was the stone of the holy grail (although it’s also believed to be emerald instead). But as the holy grail was known to be a stone that rejuvenated people and helped them to heal, it stands to reason that it could be Moldavite as this life-giving gem also shares those same qualities.
Because it literally fell from the stars, Moldavite is highly respected and revered in the spiritual community. It has an intense frequency and even when touching it you can feel this energy surge right through. It’s a stone that certainly turns up the dial when it comes to accelerating spiritual and emotional journeys and this can take some getting used to. As Moldavite is earth and stardust infused, it is genuinely a stone of transformation and can bring out some incredible changes in those who know how to harness its otherworldly energy.
Moldavite is rare, precious, and can be pricey because so much of it still sits too deep in the earth. Extracting Moldavite is complex work and refining it is also a delicate job which makes it even more special. Moldavite isn’t here en masse and it’s likely to go extinct as there is only a limited supply of it on our planet.
Many believe that the olive green and earthly energy of Moldavite was sent to us to help us ascend. There’s no denying this gem has big energy and with big energy comes big shifts. Moldavite has an intensely high frequency and that fact married with its cosmic collisions and its earthly and extraterrestrial vibes make it a strong stone indeed.
Some people when holding Moldavite for the very first time may even experience what is called the Moldavite flush. The green gem can let off an intense warmth which can send a tingling sensation through the body and lead to the wearer or holder becoming light-headed, giddy, and having a big energy shift. For some people of course this can be overwhelming. Moldavite certainly takes some getting used to, but when you have made your connection with it, this gem can take you to places and along paths you didn’t even know were possible.
- Helps with healthy cell turnover
- Strengthens the eyes
Moldavite is a stone of sublime transformation and in order to heal and ascend, it helps to know every corner of our body. This green gem helps to illuminate those darkened corners so we can see where we are out of balance and get back on track. It encourages rejuvenation and healing, inviting cells to turnover and to move away from damage. The high vibrations of Moldavite can also help shift blocks which can contribute to ongoing pain and progressive illnesses. Like other green gems, it is also good for strengthening and healing the eyes and sorting gastric ailments too. It is believed that Moldavite can also slow down the ageing process and brighten our mental clarity too.
Mental & Emotional Healing
- Helps transform behaviors
- Encourages the release of negative energy
Guiding us towards new heights, Moldavite plays a huge role when it comes to our mental and emotional healing. It’s a stone connected to the heart chakra (like other green stones) meaning that it is always keen to encourage us to open our hearts, let go of negative energy, and practice the art of perfectly messy self-love. Moldavite doesn’t do things by halves, this stone is sublime at helping to clear out archaic patterns and ideas in order to guide you to a new place where you can thrive. Moldavite does the deep dive - it goes to places untouched and untethers you from traumas you could have been carrying for many years. While this may seem overwhelming it’s important, as only by shining a bright light on hidden corners can we see where we need to heal.
- Helps awaken psychic abilities
- Connects you to spirit guides
Made of stardust and from places unknown, Moldavite definitely scores big when it comes to metaphysical magic. This gem is said to be an amulet sent to earth to help us ascend. It’s a stone that serves the spiritual community well, helping to awaken and strengthen psychic abilities, encouraging people to get in touch with their past life lessons, and connecting you to spirit guides and ethereal beings who can show you the way. Along with opening you up to spiritual forces, this gem can also keep you protected. It shares similar properties to Obsidian with its ability to throw up a forcefield of positive power to stop any bad vibes and harmful entities from getting through.
- Balances all the chakras
- Is particularly good for the heart chakra
- Also clears the third eye and the crown
Moldavite affects all the chakras (this stone is all about balance and transformation). Being a gorgeous green gem means that it shakes any blockages out from the heart chakra and encourages uplifting healing. The heart chakra sits in the middle of our breastbone and rules how we connect with other people and ourselves. An open heart chakra is essential for building beautiful levels of compassion, leaning into love and trust, healing old heart wounds, and knowing how to hold our own beautiful boundaries. When we have an open heart chakra we are more likely to nurture healthy relationships and not waste our precious time on those that don’t spark joy deep within our souls.
Moldavite also works in harmony with our third eye chakra. This is our gateway to all that glorious inner wisdom and how we learn to trust in ourselves too. By strengthening our sense of self-belief, illuminating our own deepest truths, and keeping us equally earthed and rising to new heights, we can be solid and soaring. When our third eye chakra is open, we can open ourselves up to new ideas, visions, dreams, and creative and spiritual practices. By tapping into that third eye energy, we are also able to access those psychic gifts and to rouse our crown chakra to connect with the cosmos. It’s that beautiful blend of cosmic charm and earthly weight that makes Moldavite such a worthy stone to work with.
- Good for all birth signs
Moldavite is not a traditional birthstone meaning that all zodiac signs can make the most of this glimmering green and a transcendental gem. As it is born from the stars, it carries energy for each zodiac sign within its power. It can be a beautiful stone for those born under the banner of spring as it is a crystal that welcomes renewal, freshness, rebirth, and total transformation - all the themes that flourish under the title of new life.
How to Activate Moldavite
- Activate by cleansing, energizing, and programing
- Can be a strongly energetic stone
For those wondering how to activate Moldative, there is a process that involves cleansing, energizing, and programming. The aim is to get the stone cleansed and ready so that you can sync up your energies and program it with your intention.
This can be as simple as sitting with it in hand but for those who may be sensitive to the energy of Moldavite, it may take a little more mental work. As mentioned, Moldavite can be a powerful stone and you may experience the flush, this isn’t something to fear but you may need to take a break from the stone or balance it with other crystals.
The Activation Process
All crystals can totally benefit from a simple activation process. This is how we sync up energy and transfer intention. This doesn’t have to be a big spiritual song and dance, it can be as simple as clearing your mind and your heart and sending it your requests. You may not be the kind of person who wants to send their stone an intention, preferring instead to be led by the universe. While this can be awesome and we applaud the ride, there are people out there who want to be in the driver's seat and who have a specific idea, goal, or manifestation in mind. This is where setting intentions and programming your crystal can certainly help. You may have a big reaction to Moldavite or you may not - either way, you can be sure that this stone is going to be welcoming wonderful changes into your life.
One of the most important steps when setting up your life with any kind of crystal is to get it cleansed and charged up and ready for use. This is a good step to take as you don’t know where your gem has traveled from or what energy it has picked up along the way. A simple cleanse and charge will wipe the slate clean and prep it perfectly just for you. Here are a few ways in which you can cleanse your Moldavite.
Water - hold your Moldavite under saltwater or spring water for several seconds so it has a chance for all that energy to run away. You can use tap water but any source of water within a natural setting is sure to be more powerful.
Moonlight - Moldavite is born from the space that sits beyond our sky and thus it reacts beautifully to slants of soft moonlight and the tambourine of the stars. Place your Moldavite on a windowsill at night or even plant it in the ground under a full moon and leave it until morning.
Sunshine - You can leave Moldavite under the warmth of sunlight for a couple of hours, keep it out of harsh direct sunlight.
Singing Bowls - Singing bowls can be a beautiful way to cleanse your Moldavite of any collected energy. If you don’t have a singing bowl you can also use chanting, tuning forks, and bells to bring those cleansing sound waves washing over your stone.
Smoke - Whether using incense or smudging with sage, Moldavite will react well to passing through healing smoke.
Other Stones - Some crystals out there have huge cleansing energy and will work wonders when placed in the presence of your Moldavite crystal. Selenite and large geodes are great gems for this.
Now you have a cleansed piece of Moldavite, you may want to get it energized and rev up that spiritual engine. Moldavite loves nature and it thrives from being in natural settings. You can get it buzzing and ready for action by placing it in the earth, meditating with it beneath the rustle and breeze of the trees, and generally connecting it with the natural world whether that’s spring water, sunshine, starlight, or soil.
Programming your Moldavite with your intentions will help you to clear the path of obstacles, balance the chakras, and manifest the life you want to live. Programming your Moldavite stone can be as simple as holding it in your left hand. Our left hand is our receiving hand and our right is our giving hand. As you are asking Moldative and the universe to help you receive that which you desire, it makes sense to use the left hand.
Close your eyes, take deep cleansing breaths, and use the power of visualization to envision what it is you want from your Moldavite stone. Be very clear in the asking and try to steer away from ambiguity and stick to specifics. You don’t have to just choose one thing from your Moldavite stone, you can ask for all that your heart desires.
It may take the body and the mind some time to adjust to the big energy of the Moldavite stone. On the first hold and when programming you may experience tingling, a sense of overwhelm, a high heat running through the body, and you may feel dizzy or lightheaded. This isn’t to say you should stop using the stone but tread gently until you have adjusted to its power. This may take some time and you may find yourself a little more tired than usual for a while as your own energy runs to keep up with Moldavite’s walk. Be patient and trust that it will fall into the same pace.
Crystals that work with Moldavite Crystal
As mentioned, Moldavite is one of a kind and has big energy. It’s not afraid to delve into your shadow side and its intense vibrations can sometimes sweep you off your feet in a way that feels weird. This is why it’s so important to stay grounded when dealing with Moldavite. If you are feeling untethered or unstable, you definitely will need some crystal help to adjust to the meteorite magic of Moldavite. One of the best ways to do this is to wear it or use it alongside a gentle nurturing and grounding stone. For this reason, we think Moldavite is an amazing match for Smoky Quartz.
If you need a little extra support while delving into the dark corners of your shadow self it helps to have a little more love in the room. Self-compassion is a must when working through the hard stuff and for this reason, we think Rose Quartz is going to bring that soft mothering that is needed.
Keeping clear-headed cool energy and overall balance and clarity is also a great match for Moldavite as it stops you from getting zonked out or falling into overwhelm when working with this stone. Clear Quartz is definitely your cheerleader on this front.
The Herkimer Diamond is also known to effectively balance the energies of Moldavite too. You can also turn to Amethyst if you want to stay serene and calm and checked in with your crown chakra while working on your spiritual growth with Moldavite.
Using Your Moldavite Crystal
So now you have Moldavite in your life, what is the best way to call on the healing powers of this crystal?
One of the best ways to raise your vibrations with Moldavite is to wear it. Moldavite jewelry is an active decision to keep its presence with you when you step out the door. Having Moldavite pressed against the skin is an authentic way to sync up energies all while keeping yourself surrounded by the proactive powers of this precious and rare gem.
For those who want to use Moldavite to tap into psychic powers, then meditating with it will help you to access spirit guides, cosmic connections, universal truth, angels, and ancestors too. It is a great gem to have beside you when going through shamanic journeys, past life exploration, and other such spiritual ventures. For those who are keen to clear their heart chakra, you can place Moldavite on that area during meditation.
Having your Moldavite close by while journaling or playing with creativity can also help you to remove any kinds of blocks. It’s a great tool for elevating consciousness and exploring secret corners of ourselves. There is a lot of healing to be gained from creative work.
We don’t recommend keeping Moldavite close to your bed while sleeping as it is such a strong energy stone that its vibes could disrupt your rest patterns. It can be used for those who are delving into lucid dreaming though.
Moldavite may not be a beginner stone but it is definitely a good investment for those looking to leap higher and further in a quicker time. That’s not to say that there are shortcuts in healing, but for those ready to do the work, Moldavite doesn’t beat around the bush. This is a gem that doesn’t allow you to sink into stagnancy or skip out on your full potential. It’s a stone that doesn’t just acknowledge that you want to make a change but one that goes ahead and gets you on the road to do just that. Moldavite is a rare and magical experience.
