Moldavite is one of the rarest minerals on earth. It has a rich history, prized since the Stone Age and used not only for arrowheads and cutting tools, but as a spiritual talisman and amulet of good fortune, fertility and protection. It has been linked to legends of the Holy Grail, thought to be an emerald that fell from the sky out of Lucifer’s crown before he was cast from heaven.
Moldavite is found almost exclusively in the Czech Republic and is named for the area in which it was first found, the town of Moldauthein. It is generally believed that moldavite was formed when a large meteorite crashed into the earth roughly 14.8 million years ago in what is now the Bohemian plateau. Moldavite is a type of tektite, which is a natural glass that is formed from extraterrestrial impacts with the earth.
