What is Moldavite?
Moldavite is a stone that was created from melted pieces of a meteorite that crashed in the Austrian-Czech border 14.7 million years ago.
Moldavite looks like a green glass, and is a Tektite only found in the Czech Republic. The word Tektite came from the Greek word ‘Tektos’ which means melted.
Tektites are natural glasses that come to be after a meteor hits the Earth. So tektites are formed when the meteor enters the earth’s atmosphere and the “rocks” of different sizes melt due to the heat. Though experts are still studying if the melting occurred as it entered the atmosphere or as it bounced back after the impact.
Either way, these tektites are created before or during an impact. Therefore, tektites are only found in selected places in the world. The tektites that are found in Central Europe, mostly in the Czech Republic, are called Moldavite. Many pieces of Moldavite around found all in specific spots which are called Localities or Deposits.
The Moldavite Stone
In general, some people call it a stone or crystal. For spiritual stone believers, this is a stone full of energy and is as precious as any of the gems or crystals. Some would simply call it a Moldavite stone since they are usually the size of one and are small compared to other rocks.
Moldavites are known as ‘vltavin’ in Czech. It is named after the river where most of it was found, the Vltava River. At first, in 1788, professor Josef Mayer of Prague University gave a lecture, naming it “chrysolites”. But by 1836, F. M. Zippe, author of Bohemian Gems, called it Moldavite. He got it from the German name of the same river, Moldau. It was soon more commonly used among Czech professors.
The impact site, now Nordlinger Ries Crater, is estimated to be about 14.7 million years old. In theory, when the giant meteorite hit the earth, the Moldavites fell in Bohemia, Germany, and Austria. Though the present collected Moldavite is estimated to be only 1%. Most have eroded or got buried due to natural soil erosion.
The total collective weight of all the Moldavites that has been found is around 275 tons. 10,000,000 of them have been found in South Bohemia alone. They were scattered around the towns of Písek, Veselí nad Lužnicí, České Velenice, Český Krumlov and Prachatice.
This stone is only found in Czechoslovakia and owes its name to the area in which it is located, near the river Moldau (called the Vltava in Czech).
While scientists differ in theories about the origin of Moldova, almost everyone agrees that its formation occurred with the shock of a large meteorite approximately 14.8 million years ago in what is now the Bohemian Plateau.
Properties and Uses

Wearing Moldavite in jewelry allows your energies to remain in the vibratory field throughout the day. Due to the intense vibration of Moldavite, some may experience dizziness and may need to gradually get used to wearing it.

What Does Moldavite Look Like?
Moldavites vary in sizes, colors, and properties. Of the 10 million pieces, they had a predominant color of bottle green. Moldavites vary between the lightest yellow-green to the darkest brownish-green.
Those found in Germany were generally olive green and bottle green. While those in Western Moravia were olive green and brown. These natural glasses are considered rare and often sold for museum displays, scientific studies, spiritual stones and sometimes as precious jewels. Because it is delicate as a glass, it is not often used in rings but rather as earrings and pendants. Most often, it is protected by other precious metals to avoid contact or scraping.
Most tektites are also dark when placed under a light. Moldavites are the only exception because they are mostly semi-transparent. Because of their translucency, Moldavite’s colors and properties can be closely observed. Many are composed of iron and manganese which are chemical elements that give these glasses colors.
There are three primary shapes of tektites when classified. These are splash-form tektites, Muong Nong-type tektites, and microtektites. Most Moldavites are splash-form ones or what they also call drops. But it is also common to see discs shaped, three-aerial ellipsoids, and sphere-like forms, too. Lastly, most of the Southern Bohemia Moldavites are also small. The bigger ones come from Moravia with the biggest at 258.5 grams.

how to spot fake moldavite?
With technological advances nowadays, fake Moldavites are a thing for the greedy. How to spot fake Moldavite is a skill needed here. Knowing that Moldavites are rare, people have created glass imitations. Since the Moldavite is a natural glass, some have taken the process to the extreme of creating some that looks like it. Others have found similar looking rocks and stones and sell them as Moldavites. So a lot of questions arise like how to tell if Moldavite is fake? Or how to know if Moldavite is real? To find out how, learn the following tricks and methods.
There are general rules in purchasing a real Moldavite. First is the price. Any too good to be true offering price should already alarm you. On the other hand, if you find it too expensive, research about the seller. Moldavites are recently sold per gram. Research the right price of Moldavites.
Another general rule is knowing the size of Moldavites. Any Moldavite about 50 grams or bigger than 3 inches should be doubtful. There are hardly any of those sizes sold anywhere. If you are looking for the rare big ones, always have an expert or geologist to check it. Besides, one would be too pricey for anything beyond 50 grams.
The top-secret for a real Moldavite is its Lechatelierite. These are uniquely shaped or twisted elongate long bubbles inside it. They look like wires along with straight elongated ones. To see these, get a magnifying lens so you can peek inside the Moldavite. This method alone will answer one’s question of how to tell real Moldavite.
More Physical Signs of Moldavite Fakes: How to Spot One
If the Moldavite has a smooth glass-looking color lighter than olive green, be doubtful. If it’s too shiny and bright green, it may as well be a fake. Remember, a Moldavite is a natural glass, so those who manufacture fakes use green glasses as well. So if you’re thinking of how to tell fake Moldavites from the real ones, keep this in mind. Second, if a Moldavite is too smooth or doesn’t have that elongated or “wire” bubbles at all, it sure is a fake. Fakes may try to imitate the rugged surface but check the edges if they’re natural cuts or sharp by looking at it closely.
Third, would be its shape and size. Though they now make molds out of original ones, try looking around if they are of the same shape and sizes. If that’s the case, then these are fakes. Real Moldavites have unique sizes. There are hardly any of the same shapes unless it was intentionally done so. Egg shapes are a high indication of fakes, too.
