Crystals, TIL

TIL: Modavite

Today I Learned is just me dumping information I recently learned that may or may not be accurate and with no conclusion drawn.

Modavite is a glassy Tektite crystal that comes from the Moldau river region. It is a mixture of silicon dioxide, aluminum oxide and other metal oxides with an amorphous crystal structure. It was created by a meteoric impact 14.8 million years ago in what is now the Czech Republic / Slovakia.

Moldavite is a very powerful crystal, so powerful that even people who are normaly not sensitive to subtle energies can often feel the energy radiating from this mineral. Most people report a warm or tingling sensation when holding hit, often accompanied by a strong sensation in the heart region, and sometimes a flushed face.

My experience

I bought my first modavite some 10 years ago, and I was shocked at how strong a sensation I got. It gives me tingling sensations in my hands or wherever I hold it. I hung it around my neck, and about half an hour later, I was feeling such a strong pressure over my hear area that I became afraid and considered calling an ambulance, thinking I was having a heart attack. When I removed the necklace, it stopped, so I realized it had to do with the Moldavite. I didn’t know it could have that effect, and that it was not damaging in any way. The modavite was just affecting my heart chakra, and I wasn’t used to such strong energy working on my chakras. I didn’t even know what a chakra was back then.

So, for a long time, I didn’t dare put it on, because I didn’t know what was happening. But nowadays, I understand, and I also realized how this particular crystal matches my personal needs. It was almost like it was searching for me.

I have come to understand how important your heart is.

Proverbs 4:23
Above all the things that you guard, safeguard your heart, For out of it are the sources of life.

Lately I have learned that the energy from a moldavite stone is especially connected with the heart chakra in a positive way, and that it help shield your own aura/bio-energy field from negative or unwanted energies, so carrying a piece of moldavite over my heart is a way to safeguard my heard.

Of course, safeguarding your heart primarily means to not let negative thoughts and emotions affect you negatively so that you make poor decisions or leave God, but on a more practical way, a half-way physiological, half-way spiritual way, having a protective energy field by my heart chakra may help protect it from all manner of negative entities, both human and non-human.

More properties


Being such a strong crystal, you can feel it’s effects quite clearly all the time, giving you a constant reminder of your connection with the divine. It is like it’s constantly in the gray area between spirit and flesh, reminding you that the world is not materialistic, but spiritual, energy based.

Moldavite has calming, rejuvenating and healing effects. It can help with memory retention and other brain functions. It is said to be good for the eyes, asthma, allergies and even gout.

Moldavite, as mentioned, is a heart stone, resonating with the heart chakra. It helps the brain-heart connection. It increases joy, compassion, love and empathy. If your heart chakra is out of whack, you may feel controlled or controlling in relationships, having inappropriately strong emotional responses to everyday stimuli and become overly critical of small matters. Modavite can help you rebalance this. It helps you chill, in other words.

Moldavite stimulates the third eye, the pineal gland, and also the crown chakra. It can help with the energy transfer from the heart, through the throat chakra to the third eye, to help decalcify the pineal gland, bringing you higher awareness and spiritual awakening.

The Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head, and is our gateway to the expanded universe beyond our bodies. It controls how we think, and how we respond to the world around us. It is the fountainhead of our beliefs and the source of our spirituality. When the Crown is in balance, our energies are in balance. We know our place in the universe and see things as they are. We are unruffled by setbacks, knowing they are an essential part of life.

With its high vibrational frequency, Moldavite’s energies can activate any or all of the chakras, often simultaneously, and sometimes with great emotional release. It has also been known to stimulate the Kundalini energy.

Meditation with Moldavite

Meditating with Moldavite may produce powerful visionary states, out of body travel, merging with the Light, or other phenomena. Place in the hand, on the heart, third eye, crown, or any chakra that feels appropriate, assists in quieting the mind and allows for an easier flow into resonance with the stone’s emanating vibrations.
