Moldavite is the only extraterrestrial gemstone known to man and can only be found in a small area of the Czech Republic. This green, translucent gem is very rare and it's exact origin is still a mystery. The main theory of the origin of these amazing semi-precious stones says that they were formed under huge temperatures and pressures during the impact of a meteorite on Earth roughly 14 million years ago.
Moldavite achieved worldwide fame when the Swiss government presented a platinum jewel to English Queen Elisabeth II in the center of which was a Czech moldavite surrounded by diamonds and black pearls.
Since time immemorial people have known that moldavite harmonizes the organism, increases the ability of concentration and gives people energy. It eliminates fatigue, headaches and provides protection against diseases. Moldavite is popular for use in meditations. Tradition has it that this stone has its life, its �soul�. That it increases its temperature in the presence of a man by taking negative energy away from the body and harmonizing the organism. If it is stored separately from a man, it cools down and seems to be missing a man. For these its peculiar properties it was even examined in the NASA. They have confirmed the theory that the effect of moldavites on man does not consist in something we only imagine.
