About 20 million years ago there was a meterorite shower in the Moldau Valley of Czechoslovakia. The result of this shower was moldavite, a rare crystal of a bottle-green, translucent hue. Although some people believe that it is a true meteorite (formed in outer space), it is more generally believed that it originates from rock which was struck by a meteorite and melted.

Moldavite combines extraterrestrial and terrestrial properties. Moldavite is beneficial for compassion, security, empathy and emotional trauma.
