We often get people asking
questions about our Moldavite so we have written this blog to try to
answer some of the common questions that we get about it.
I will try to accurately recite to you the amazing story that I was told while speaking on the phone to our supplier…
Moldavite is a natural crystal which was formed when a meteorite hit Earth and threw a great amount of hot rock and sand into the sky. As the rock fell back down to Earth it cooled, oxidised and solidified from it’s molten form into the green semi-transparent crystal that we know as Moldavite, which is an oxidised form of Silicon (common sand), chemically represented as SiO2. As a consequence of the rapid cooling in mid-air as it fell, bubbles solidify in the crystal giving it a mottled appearance. In fact you can often distinguish it from fake Moldavite by looking for these bubbles in your Moldavite as fake Moldavite is unlikely to have it.
1. Is it genuine? I thought that the original mine had all dried up?
Firstly, all of our moldavite is genuine and we get it from a long standing reputable specialist supplier in crystals. It is not treated in any way. Some people ask if there is any certification of this with our Moldavite, but as it would cost over £300 from a gemologist for each piece, most people would not want to pay this for each crystal, so our crystal supplier kindly include a card with detailed information on both the crystals’ holistic and chemical properties. Fake Moldavite has known to be supplied as pieces of green tinted glass – look for the bubbles formed during oxidation in real modavite!
Some people say that that it’s no longer possible to get Moldavite because the original mine dried up and while the original mine most likely has dried up now, there are other mines dotted around in secret locations (for obvious reasons) which still yield a plentiful supply of genuine Moldavite.
People are often quite keen to get hold of Moldavite because it is said to have extra-terrestrial spiritual properties and although it is true that the asteroid that hit the Earth can be classed as extra-terrestrial, the rock which Moldavite is formed from is itself Earthen silicon based sand.
Our customers still report back to us that they can feel a great deal of power from our Moldavite and perhaps, indeed, it is this extra-terrestrial link which gives a rise to a spiritual connection with extra-dimensional beings and/or energies.
2. Why is it such a small piece? Can I get a bigger piece?
is a semi-precious stone and so has a high price to weight/size ratio.
This will mean that it will cost more to get a bigger piece as it is
highly sought after and valuable.
We can get
hold of larger peices on occasion, although these tend to be more
rectangular in shape unlike smaller pieces which can be more rounded.
possible alternative to Moldavite is our Tektite Tumblestones which are
from the same crystalline family as Moldavite (the Tektite family) and
you may find you can still tune into extra-terrestrial properties from
these crystals, but have the advatage of being a much bigger stone for

How to Read with my Runes
by Elaine Browne (Reiki Level II)
Rune stones date back many centuries as atool used for divination. Each carries a symbolic inscription which is subject to interpretation, categorised within the same family as pendulums and tarot cards
Prior to any use of stones:
Take time to clear your mind and focus on what it is you seek answers to, taking the bag filled with stones in your receptive/dominant hand, mentally or vocally call upon your divinity of choice; angels/spiritguides etc and invite only those from the highest vibrations and from the whitelight of the holy spirit to make contact and work for your greater good,clearly state that no other realms are welcome.
It is important to cleanse all stones both before and after any use in order for them to work for you. This can be donevia smudging or rinsing under flowing water.
Think carefully about how to word yourquestions to the runes, for e.g. open questions allow much more scope for explanations unless it is a yes or no only reading.
One rune draw:
Ideal for use on a daily basis as a guide towards your day- suggested questions may be what do I need to know to make my day a success/ i.e. should Anzus bedrawn it may well imply that communication will prove to be of importance that day and be sure to listen well.
Three rune reading:
Pose the desired question and extract threerune stones (one at a time) from the bag. Interpretation is as follows; thefirst stone will hold an understanding of the question which has been asked (an overview) .The second stone relates to ‘action’ interpreting your opinions and what you may now wish to do next. The third should be fairly self explanatory and viewed as an outcome.
Four stone reading:
After stating your question, remove fourstones (one at a time) from the bag and lay them out from left to right. The first stone represents influences of the past, the second is current, the thirdone potential influences in the future and the fourth is representative of general energies and lessons to be learnt if behaviours are left unchanged.
If a blank rune is drawn at any time it canimply that the question is either not yet fully able or ready to be answered,or that it may be better that you don’ t know the answer. A repeat of the questionmay be asked, however should it still drawing as blank after a ‘third’ time,then this would strongly suggest that you are simply not meant to know the answer.
Be sure to acknowledge and thank both thestones and your called upon divinity to ensure future guidance.
If you are someone who likes to reflect back, then it may be a good idea to create a log of the day/ time/ date/ place/purpose of reading.

The following sections: ‘What are crystals?’, ‘Cleansing crystals’, ‘Programming crystals’, ‘Crystal Beauty’, ‘Crystals and the Chakras’, and ‘What is magic?’, were kindly written for us by Elaine Browne (Reiki Level II qualified practitioner).
What are Crystals?
For thousands of years, crystals have been used for protection and adornment. Crystals are born deep within the womb of Mother Earth – defined as ‘a substance solidified in a definitive geometric form’.
Any stone with a crystalline structure can be referred to as a crystal. This geometric form results from the way in which crystals were created millions of years ago.
Superheated gases and mineral solutions forced their way up and out of The Earth’s molten interior towards the surface. In time, as they cooled, atoms formed orderly patterns. Three-Dimensional lattices repeating throughout are what hold the crystal’s internal structure stable.
Crystals can be sectioned into families or groups sharing basic qualities even though they may appear different.
Their appearance is affected by the pressures and temperatures at which they were formed.
Due to crystals absorbing so much energy from their surroundings it is highly important to cleanse them regularly. Ideally, those used for decorative purposes should be cleansed monthly and those used in healing frequently should be cleansed daily of after each use; otherwise, any negative energies/vibrations picked up by it will be easily passed on.
Crystals will absorb any negativity from people or its placing so that positivity can be replaced.
Easy ways to purify…
Natural forces – Plants, Sun, Moon, water, etc. are very effective in ridding of stale energies.
Smudging – Hold the crystal in smoke from a Sage smudge stick – use a feather to fan smoke across the crystal.
Visualization – Use your mind to picture a pure white light coming down and surrounding the crystal. Transmit the energies until the crystal shines out once more.
Water – Immerse in water for an hour or two. NB. Please remember that this method is not suitable for soft or friable stones.
Quartz Cluster – Stand the crystal on a large quartz cluster for approximately twelve hours and leave in moon or sunlight. Stones have a natural affinity to benefit from this.
Crystals work best when programmed for a specific desire which harnesses your intent.
In order to make a crystal your own, it is important to first program it. This ensures that whatever your intention for it will come about.
1. Always remember to dedicate the energies for the highest good.
2. Dedicate immediately after cleansing.
3. Dedication is simple but enormously effective as it positively focuses any intention.
How to program a crystal…
1. Hold the crystal in your hands and picture a pure light around it.
2. Reinforce that the crystal will only be used for the highest good in love, light and healing; then move directly on to programming.
3. It is important to focus while programming and remember that imprecise wording confuses crystals whilst meticulous wording directs precisely.
The shape of a crystal determines how it transmits energy and what impact that energy has on its surroundings. Here is a brief guide to what to look for depending on its intended use…
Geodes – Cave like in appearance. These both diffuse and contain energy.
Square Crystals – Consolidate energy.
Pyramid Shape – Tightly focus energy through the apex.
Egg Shaped – Are brilliant for use on the body and rebalancing blockages – can be a tool in alternative therapies.
Spheres – These emit energy in all directions equally. They can be used to transport energy from other times or places.
Clusters – Radiate out their intense energy which surrounds them. They are very cleansing!
Double Terminated (points both ends) – Used for balance as they give and absorb at the same time.
Long Pointed Crystals – Focuses in a straight line depending on which way it is pointing. Draws off or injects energy. They are useful in healing.
Crystals and the Chakras
Chakras are energy points which link the physical body with electromagnetic bodies which surround it.
When balancing and healing the Chakra, a colour appropriate stone is placed where comfortable (back or front of the body) on the Chakra (and optionally above the head or below the feet) to perform certain tasks.
Specific colours aid specific tasks, and can be chose to either energise or sedate a Chakra depending on need.
The colour of the stone/crystal used has the following effects…
Oranges and Reds – Stimulate.
Blues and Greens – Calm.
Violet – Elevates.
The seven Chakra points and their corresponding colours are as follows (note that alternative colours are often used for Chakra points and different sources may state them differently)…
1. Crown – Violet
2. Third Eye – Indigo
3. Throat – Blue
4. Heart – Green
5. Solar Plexus – Yellow
6. Sacral – Orange
7. Base/Root – Red
As an optional extra, stones may also be placed at The Higher Crown (above the head) and on The Earth (below the feet).
What is Magic?
Magic can so easily be incorporated into everyday life to aid you through a whole host of tough challenges and obstacles. Magic and crystals go way back. All elements have a magical force about them…
In Fire – We see movements in flame and hear crackles with reactions similar to those of electricity holding a positive charge. This is known as ‘Electrical Fluid’, relating directly to the expansion qualities of fire.
In Water – Magnetic qualities are shown in river currents and tide rolls at moon rise. This force is ‘Magnetic Fluid’, holding a negative charge linking to shrinking and contracting qualities.
In Air – This Element has a good relationship with Fire (by nourishing and strengthening it) and Water (by changing its density: – transforming it to fog, snow, rain, etc.) Air provides a grounding force for when Fire and Water mix!!!
In Earth – This Element contains Fire, Water and Air in their most solid forms; together forming rocks, lava, etc. and makes our soils rich moist, warm and dusty. By actively involving these other three Elements, this is where Earth takes its life source from which is equivalent to ‘Electromagnetic Fluid’.
