The impact had such force and energy that it vaporized a good chunk of the surface along with the meteorite. This had the effect of blowing lots of material into the upper parts of the earth atmosphere and space and some of it eventually rained down as it cooled.
I often wonder how could such an energetic impact, and it was rather large, could impact a physical material to act as Moldavite often does for the good of humanity.
This meteorite, struck the Earth in what was to become the south Germany about 14-15 Million years ago. It had an estimated size of over 3,000 feet wide. Using mathematics and physical models, its weight is calculated to be about 500 Million tons. It's speed is estimated as 56,000 miles/hour. Because of two different shock waves running trough the Meteorite at the same time, the meteorite exploded just a few 10ths of seconds after the impact. The rather large amount of energy during the impact of the impact is estimated to be the equivalent with 50,000 Hiroshima Atomic Bombs!
Most of that material turned into a mixture that looks
like glass and it is. It rained down back to the planet as it cooled forming the characteristic shapes found in the Moldavite samples. It gets the name from the area where it is found.
It is one kind of tektite or natural glass. They were introduced to the scientific public for the first time in 1786 as “chrysolites” from Týn nad Vltavou in a lecture by professor Josef Mayer of Prague University, read at a meeting of the Bohemian Scientific Society. Zippe (1836) first used the term “Moldavite” derived from the town of Moldauthein in Bohemia the Czech Republic, from where the first described pieces came from.
Now for the good part.
The crater is still visible and much of the Moldavite available had been found in the splash area that would occur from the impact.
Now it must be clear that Moldavite can only come from this one area and it happened only once! Some unscrupulous people will call other tektites Moldavite when it really is not.
It gets worse. The Chinese and others have been melting green bottle glass and have gotten good enough to make it look like Moldavite and advertise it for sale on ebay. BEWARE! This does not mean that you can't buy a genuine piece of Moldavite from China . It just makes it highly unlikely. Buy only from a reputable source! Learn to tell the fakes apart. Buy only sight seen pieces. Most Moldavite pieces are small. Any large pieces that look beautiful are most likely fake. It should also not be homogeneous and have sharp edges and ridges. It it shines all over, its fake. Beware of FAKES! There is more...
As a result of this violent event, the glass took on specific earthly and meteoric energies in between the atomic spaces. These energies are strong and can be felt my most people as what is known as the Moldavite Flush. This effect is felt my most when in proximity with it and can feel as heat, cold and often woozy, dizzy feelings. Others report psychic an strange phenomenon, some can be scary. It is all dependent on the energy state of the person and what the Moldavite energies do.
I would get a piece is from http://www.arkadiancollection.com/.
I got mine from http://fivesisters.co/ in Miami. Their stuff is genuine and I verify it myself along with other sensitives. I would hate to spend lots of hard earned money for a piece of green bottle glass.
The Arcadian Collection people run an ethical mine in the old Czech Republic. They dig the Moldavite themselves and then plant orchards to heal the land. They also fashion their pieces into unique jewelry. Recently, the Czech Republic has made it harder to mine for Muldavite. I suspect they want to get in on the revenue stream. So if you want one and come across it, buy it! It is becoming more rare and prices are skyrocketing because people seek it out.
I would not use it as jewelry per say because its effects may be dramatic. Having a necklace is convenient but I would not use it on a daily basis and then only for a few hours at a time.
This stuff is powerful.
Moldavite is a definite and powerful Chakra opener and activator, particularly resonating with the Heart, 3rd Eye, and Crown Chakras. Although its energy tends to first move to wherever it is most needed in the physical and etheric bodies, it will settle and center in the heart. I feel it has strong Mother Earth energy, Gaia if you will, and the Earth is a nurturing mother full of Love and caring. The Earth is alive!
I have not felt the Moldavite effect but have felt the heat effect. I think that its because I've been used to high frequency crystals with my wand work.
I did place it on my 3rd eye for about 2 minutes and took it off by instinct. No weird things to report.
This is what http://www.crystalvaults.com/ has to say on the properties of this wonderful stone.
Moldavite is good for counteracting cynicism and connects even the most world-weary adult with the wonders of the universe. It eases away doubts, even when the cause is unknown, and calms worries about money by providing solutions not previously considered.
Carrying or wearing Moldavite in jewelry allows its energies to remain in one's vibrational field throughout the day strengthening its effects and increasing the incidents of beneficial synchronicities in daily life. Because of Moldavite's intense vibration, some may experience light-headedness or a lack of grounding and may need to acclimate themselves gradually to wearing it.
Moldavite is a useful stone for star children and sensitive souls who find it difficult being in incarnation on the earth, and who cannot adjust to suffering and deep emotions. Placed on the heart, Moldavite uncovers the reasons and purpose for why one is here, and eases the "homesickness" for those whose origin is not Earth.
Moldavite works extremely well in combination with other stones, particularly with the crystalline energies of Quartz varieties. It is one of the Synergy Twelve stones, and is ideal for use in making energy tools. Add to wands, headbands, templates, grids and other devices to intensify their effects
Moldavite is a powerful aid for meditation and dream-work, as well as increasing one's sensitivity to guidance, intuition and telepathy, and the ability to understand messages sent from higher realms.I do not know that it needs to be cleared/cleaned of negative energy. Something that can last for 15 million years and hold a charge will hardly be affected by us. But It would not hurt to wash it with water. I would place it in sunlight or hold it while in the ocean. Placing it on top of a piece of selenite would help. And do not worry about it running out of energy, it will outlast you by thousands of lifetimes.
Think of it as an Earth Energy Battery that lasts for a long long time. I've recently read of a story by a woman that bought a piece and got pregnant. She kept it throughout the pregnancy and when she gave birth, the Moldavite fell to pieces. She felt that the child needed those energies to come in and she is special. Some might call it a Star Child. This is something to think about and wonder.
So I do know that this piece is to be combined with a Herkimer Diamond which I have to still purchase. The end result may take the form of a special healing pendant or maybe a wand. I still do not know. I ordered some silver wire, I'll see what it wants to do...
RIDE THE WAVE, Namaste
Here it is and it took some doing as I had to carve out a custom foot print for the Moldavite along with the Herkimer Diamond in the selenite. This has turned out to be a very high energy piece. I showed it to the owner of 5 Sisters and she agreed.
I plan to wear this while I do Reki treatments.
The selenite is quite unique in that it has clear selenite crystals embedded in the satin spar piece. It is a bit heavy but that is selenite for you. This one is mine. If you want one, contact me through my etsy shop and we can discus the process. Mind you a small piece of intact genuine selenite at a great price might cost $30-40.
