Hi,

I have a question for those who have experience working with Moldavite - how much does size and grade matter?

Does a "museum grade" piece work better? Any recommendations for moldavite shopping?

Thanks : )

I'd be interested in this myself. My only options are through the internet; those pieces that I see on Ebay... Well I always wonder if they're just pieces of glass. And they're all so small for such a hefty price!

I got mine from Ebay and its a pretty good size.Mine is about 1 1/4 inches by 13/4 inch wide set in a beautiful sterling silver setting. I am not a t home right now but when I get home later I will look up who I got it from and send you a PM.I paid under $25.00 for mine and its beautiful.

Mine is pretty small, just about 1/2 inch x 3/4 inch by 1/8", but it is extremely powerful. It's set in sterling and can be worn as a pendant. I got it from ebay, and I don't recall offhand how much it was, but it wasn't very much, less than $20 as I recall.

I feel that no matter what size, a stone is going to give off a vibration.

Now, my question would have to do with clarity. Would a stone with a better clarity give off more of a pulse vibration?

Sometimes I hand write questions like these to, Melody ( Love Is In the Earth) and she writes back.

Maybe I'll ask her about this.

What does everyone say? Would the clarity of a stone be just as powerful? And, woud the size of a stone that was larger give off a stronger pulse vibration? Excellent question photokat. Would a larger stone have a stronger pulse vibration because of size? Hmmm..I have no idea.

You know, another company that knows details like this is International Isotopes. They check stones for giving off a pulse, or any type of radioactive stuff. they would be able to tell you. Remember a few Christmas's ago I inquired about enhanced Topaz, and many stores took them off the market? I am wondering if size matters. Perhaps not, in thinking about this.

Remember, I got rid off all my vaseline glass beads because, no matter what size because they gave off radiation? I was told it was like, back room radiation. Radiation just the same. Size didn't matter.


I am thinking.....perhaps clarity would matter because a stone with better clarity would have less impurities, and those impurities wouldn't get in the way of the pulse vibration. But, do you know how intune you would have to be to notice the differences? I
would say, you would be really intune to the vibrational forces to notice that difference, unless it's a natural gift.

Excellent topic photokat. I find it utterly interesting.

I mainly asked this because Moldavite is pricey - I personally have a feeling that a 10g (approx 50 ct) piece appears to be good for healing work but that's a wild guess - saw some really nice 100+ ct pieces, too, but they're $$$$!

I did have a small piece of Moldavite set in silver before and I didn't get much from it so I gave it away. I was also wondering if silver affects the stone or not?

It sure didn't affect mine--after sitting with it the first time, holding it in my hand for about 5 minutes, I felt the effects intensely and continuously for about a day and a half. And it permanently raised my vibration--for the better, all in all, but it was a bit disconcerting having it happen all at once like it did.

I just read someplace how to test if the Moldavite is genuine:

Moldavite is a natural glass hardens of 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale where glass is about 5, it can scratch normal glass.

In my experience, size and clarity really don't matter. I've had perfectly clear, large crystals that were almost dead and smaller, impure crystals that just sing with energy. I think the energy of the piece is a remnant of the place where the crystal grew - crystals mined in certain places will have more powerful energy than others no matter what they look like. Imagine a crystal that grew in a large ley line of positive energy. It would be much stronger than a crystal that grew in a more stagnant area of the earth.

It has also been my experience that the most clear crystals have less energy than ones with inclusions and small fractures. I wonder why that would be.

I just ordered a few pieces of Moldavite from different places and will report back here!

Hi all,

No, not really. The strongest moldavite I ever had was my first one, purchased on Ebay on April 2008. It is a 47ct stone. Since then I purchased an 86ct (rough) pendant, an 124ct piece from a dealer in the Czech Republic, a 71ct (tube format) from an American seller and another one (68.5ct) from the first dealer I purchased from. I also purchased very small ones (15ct pendant) from another American seller, a pair of earrings (polished moldavites) and two rings, one rough and the other one polished. So you can have an idea, this past May I consulted a tarot reader @ the Theosophical Society here in NYC and the reader asked if my ring was a moldavite. Since it it a very small stone I was surprised at the question, so I asked him if he was feeling "something". He said yes, a typical vibration, isn't this something? I don't feel anything with the rings, which doesn't mean they are not "working".

Just make sure you know how to tell a real moldavite from a fake one if you use ebay, like me. Ebay is full of dishonest sellers trying to pass regular glass or black tektites as moldavites. If you need any help I can give you a list of honest dealers, just email me @
hyleg@yahoo.com

Take care.
