Moldavite: is a member of the Tektite group formed from interplanetary collisions. From the Greek word tektos, meaning "molten," Tektites are glassy mixtures of silicon dioxide, aluminum oxide and other metal oxides with an amorphous crystal structure. Unlike other Tektites from around the world which are tar black or brownish-black, translucent Moldavite is a deep forest green and is the only variety suitable for cutting and faceting as a gem
Origin: This beautiful stone is rare, found only in Czechoslovakia, and is named for the area in which it is found, near the Moldau River (called the Vltava in Czech). While scientists differ in theories regarding Moldavite's origin, nearly all agree its formation coincides with the crash of a large meteorite approximately 14.8 million years ago in what is now the Bohemian plateau. The rock metamorphosed by the heat of impact created a strew field of Moldavite in the two, mostly rural, areas of Bohemia and Moravia.
Healing Properties: As a Stone of Connectivity, Moldavite carries an intense frequency, a fusion of earthly and extraterrestrial energies that are quickly felt, often dramatically in those who resonate with its power. Holding Moldavite for the first time often produces a sensation of heat, felt first in the hand, then progressively throughout the body. In some cases the heart chakra is activated, experienced as a pounding pulse, followed by sweating or flushing of the face, and an emotional release that may range from laughter to tears.
Uniqueness: One look at Moldavite and there's no question it is a stone of greatness, etherically carved of spiritual fire and destined for purpose. This mysterious green talisman is star-born, formed from nature's violent meteoric impact with Mother Earth. Etched by force and flame as it fell from the heavens Moldavite returned to the earth's surface transformed, a glass of amazing delicacy and grace ready to serve humankind.
FAKE -----VS ------REAL
Moldavite is in very limited supply, so most floating around the market (Larger Size) are usually ALL fake. Please do not ask me for matching earrings or oversized pendants, as no two pieces of Moldavites are ever alike and they never come in matching shape or size to make a pair of earrings out of. As size of Moldavite goes up, so does the cost, any oversized ones that are sold in the market for cheaper price is all counterfeit product.

Sterling silver (.925 or free-form) is a precious metal and therefore requires cleaning from time to time. Storing your jewelry in small zip-lock bags away from moisture driven environment and from direct exposure to sunlight can minimize tarnish and dullness. Since my jewelry is enclosed with stones, an important fact to be noted is that any sort of chlorine or bleach can accelerate tarnishing and will harm stones such as: Titanium Druzy, Pyrite ammonite, Moldavite, Lapis Lazuli, Rhodocrosite, Coral, Malachite and Pearls.
