Here we are again, at the beginning of a new month. March brings with it the ideas of rebirth, new growth and fertility as we spring toward a new season. Green is the color that comes to mind for many reasons and brings with it the desire for an end to winter and all the greyness. Moldavite may just satisfy that desire. Its formation coincides with the crash of a large meteorite that crashed in what is now the Czech Republic and Slovakia. This crash was one of tremendous power and metamorphosed the rock by the heat of impact. The Neolithic peoples of Eastern Europe wore Moldavite as a talisman and also used it for arrow heads and cutting tools.
It was found in the archeological site of the Venus of Willendorf, the oldest known Goddess statue. 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. In Czech lore, it was given as a betrothal gift to bring harmony to marital relations, and for centuries has been used in jewelry, religious items, and spiritual transformation.
Moldavite is good for counteracting cynicism and connects even the most world-weary adult with the wonders of the universe. It eases away doubts, even when the cause is unknown, and calms worries about money by providing solutions not previously considered.
It is a powerful aid for meditation and dream work. It can be a catalyst for self-healing and clearing blockages. Moldavite offers spiritual protection. It can prevent negative energies or entities from penetrating one’s energy field. The healing properties can help with physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. It has even been purported to slow the aging process!
Crystals of Green honor Persephone, the Greek Goddess of Spring. She represents celebration and the Earth alive with new growth. That makes this beautiful green crystal an excellent one for March with both the eventual coming of spring and, of course, St. Patrick’s Day!
