Inside a Moldavite

So many people seem to think that a chip or a break on a Moldavite is a bad thing and that they are some how imperfect.  People ask me if the moldavite power leeches out through the breaks or has the moldavite lost all of it’s metaphysical properties?  Let’s look inside a moldavite.

Let me make it clear – No! moldavites don’t lose their ‘power’.  Unlike a battery they have come permanently charged.  You won’t ever need to recharge them – ever.  The majority of moldavites have been broken at some time in their 15 million year cycle.  It was inevitable they would break because, after all, moldavites are a naturally formed glass. As they broke over the millions of years due to being surrounded by dirt, sand and rock, they roughed up again. The very actions that caused them to break, the movement of the earth as Gaia breathed and stretched in her lazy way, were also the actions that cause them to gain more crevices as the sand and water brushed over them for another million years.

I look on a break as being an opportunity to see the inner beauty of the moldavite. I believe everything happens for a reason and so if the moldavite miner was a little clumsy and caused a break who am I to say that there wasn’t a reason for that to happen?

Inside a Moldavite

This is the inside of a broken moldavite – the bubbles you can see contain air from 15 million years ago.  I’m not sure if it’s air from earth or vacuum from beyond the atmosphere.  Moldavite was created from the splashes of molten glass which were created when a meteor landed in Germany.  The explosion was so fierce and violent that the earth melted.  The super heated mass of molten rain was flung into space (proved by scientists) and as it fell back to earth 300 km away in the Czech Republic bubbles were trapped as the molten glass started to solidify.

  1. Thanks for this insight! I bought a beautiful Moldavite ring yesterday- this piece that kept me coming back to it even though there were others there. Yet when I got home I saw two chips and they are actually as you say, little windows to see into the stone. A window to 15 million years ago. Thank you for helping me to see something in a new light.
