Moldavite has long been known as a sacred stone. It was found in altar amulets from 25,000 BCE, and has been linked in legend to the fabled Stone of the Holy Grail. It was believed in Czech folklore to guide one to one’s destiny and to help one find and preserve true love. In current times, Moldavite is known as a stone of rapid and powerful spiritual transformation. It can catalyze major priority shifts and even physical life changes. Its tendency is to attract all that relates to one’s spiritual evolution and highest good, and to dissolve one’s connections with whatever hinders that evolution. These can include changes in career, relationships, diet, health and personal goals, as well as inner awakenings, prophetic dreams,and visions of one’s true destiny. Moldavite has often caused a sudden opening of the heart chakra, known as the “Moldavite flush.” It can stimulate any chakra and it brings healing wherever it is needed in the body. Moldavite also has the capacity to disappear and reappear, displaying a Trickster quality. Moldavite can energize the effects of many stones; it harmonizes especially well with Herkimer “Diamonds ” and all types of Quartz.
