Moldavite

Moldavite is a glass, not a mineral, because its internal structure is amorphous, not crystalline.

Chemistry: SiO2 plus Al2O3, variable.

Color: light to darker green

Luster: vitreous

Diaphaneity: translucent to transparent to opaque

Moh’s scale hardness: 5 ½

Specific gravity: 2.32 – 2.38

Named after: the region of Moldavia (where the Moldau River flows).

Type locality: Name first introduced by Zippe (1836) after the main occurrence at the Vltava River (Moldau River) in Southern Bohemia.

Geological occurrence: A natural glass originating from the impact of a meteorite in Bavaria 15 million years ago (present Ries crater)

Energetic properties: known as a “stone of connectivity,” moldavite enhances the connection of higher vibrational star (extraterrestrial) energies in the body. Many react strongly in their first contact with moldavite. It enhances connections to higher vibrational energies in all areas of study.
