All of the genuine pieces of this crystal come from only one area of the world in the Czech Republic.
The meaning of the name Moldavite relates to the Moldau River in Czechoslovakia.
A meteorite of enormous size is known to have crashed in the Czechoslovakian mountain region about 15 million years ago. Its impact is said to have had more power than an atomic explosion.
This amazing stone was created by the heat of an incredible impact that had extraordinary force. Its aero-dynamic shape suggests that in all likelihood this attractive green stone fell from the heavens.
These crystals were found close to the area where this impact occurred. This event is believed to have produced melted material that fell to earth and created these beautiful green crystals.
These stones often have dark inclusions within them and it has been suggested that this may be a combination of meteoric matter and material from the area where it crashed.
The heat generated may have melded them together.
Note: that although some scientists believe it to be of extra-terrestrial origin, this cannot be confirmed.
