Unique Qualities
This large checker-faceted genuine Moldavite gem has a partially polished backside with ripples of raw texture which shines through the face of the stone, giving it character and a unique appearance. All of our Moldavite gems are cut in house by our lapidary expert and are sourced directly from the Czech Republic from our own exclusive locality. Perfectly suspended gas bubbles and natural inclusions of lechatelierite, an amorphous pure form of SiO2  can be seen within the gem, easily identifying it as an authentic Moldavite. Lechatelierite is the telltale sign of authentic Moldavites and impossible to fake. These inclusions appear as distinctive elongated transparent fluvial spirals and wormlike fibers. Lechatelierite was formed during the intense heating of the host rock after impact millions of years ago when Moldavite was first formed. 

Moldavite was formed during a celestial event some 15 million years ago. A huge astroid estimated to be around 1 km in diameter struck southern Germany and formed what is today known as Ries Crater. Moldavite is known as the stone of transformation, a catalyst to inspire positive change and elevate one’s consciousness.
