The gem from outer space! This stunning olive-green gem belongs to a family of stones called Tektites: meteoric impact glasses. 14.7 million years ago, a giant meteorite hit western Bavaria, causing melted terrestrial material to fly into the air, where it cooled quickly and formed moldavite. Most of it fell in the Moldau Valley in the Czech Republic, hence the name “moldavite.” Even those not usually sensitive to the energies of stones report feeling the energy of moldavite. It is said to be the stone of transformation and spiritual growth.
