Born in the fires of a cosmic impact, Moldavite’s story is as intriguing as its metaphysical energy. About 15 million years ago a meteorite crashed to Earth with the impact of 1.8 million Hiroshima bombs creating the enormous Nördlinger Ries impact crater in Bavaria, Germany. Sand and mineral-rich earth was superheated and fell back down about 450km away from the original impact site in Bohemia, the modern-day Czech Republic. This intense heating and cooling created the magickal olive-green tektite we know as Moldavite.
The craze on TikTok now, Moldavite has increased in price rapidly and this has created a market in glass fakes, etched with acid being produced in China. Our Moldavite comes directly to us from the Czech Republic and has the correct colour, natural inclusions of bubbles and worm-like lechatelierite.
