As the price of Moldavite continues to rise, what are the Moldavite alternatives? Here are seven crystal substitutes that are much easier to find and won’t put you in dept…
What Makes Moldavite So Special?
Moldavite is a rare form of Tektite, a natural meteoric glass. It was formed by a meteor impact around 15 million years ago, possibly in what is now Germany. The tektites were deposited in the region of Bohemia, currently the Czech Republic.
What also makes them unique is their forest green colour and intricate ruffled surface. This was a one-off historic event and other tektites look different. Therefore there is only so much of this material on the planet.
Moldavite’s Energetic Properties
The energy of Moldavite is high vibration with some people finding it too much for them. Moldavite is a stone of transformation that can speed up your spiritual awakening and personal growth.
It is a deep cleanser that often flushes the chakras on the first contact. Moldavite can connect you with extraterrestrial energy and consciousness.
Many people feel that this stone helped them go through needed life transitions and big changes. Please note some people have bad reactions to Moldavite yet some people feel nothing at all. If possible you could try it in a shop before you buy it.
What’s Going On With Moldavite?
Moldavite has never been cheap because it’s eventually going to run out. This means the price keeps going up over time. The less they find, the rarer it becomes. The higher the demand, the higher the price people will pay for it. Moldavite has become popular within the crystal community over the last few decades.
More recently it has been brought to the attention of a wider and younger audience. From what I understand several videos about it on the social media platform Tiktok have gone viral. Some of what I hear is that there is a lot of hype and also some fear-mongering going on too. Please try not to get caught up in this!
Despite this, this all seems to have increased the demand and pushed the price to astronomical levels. People are now paying serious money for tiny pieces. On top of this, it has also increased the amount of fake Moldavite being sold.
So, What Are the Moldavite Alternatives?
Many of you have emailed and messaged me telling me you can’t afford Moldavite and asking me if there are similar stones out there. Don’t worry if you can’t afford or justify the price or you are worried about buying fakes. There are Moldavite alternatives that can be used in a similar way. Just remember that substitutes share some of the properties of Moldavite, but are never the same.
Here are a few of my suggestions for you. Please read the descriptions to select the right alternative for your needs and energy.
Any Tektites could be used as Moldavite alternatives. These were created in the same way but from different meteorites in other parts of the world. The most common and affordable ones are the black ones.
Tektites have cosmic energy and connect with other star systems and dimensions. They help starseeds feel more connected to the planet and their purpose. They align and balance all the chakras. I’ll talk about more unusual Tektites later…
This green-ray stone is deeply transformative. Malachite helps you shed the old you and become who you are destined to be. This crystal detoxifies your energy and can speed up your spiritual growth.
Like Moldavite, it may trigger big changes in your life, if they are needed and you are ready for them.
Like Moldavite, this shimmering blue crystal holds a very high vibrational frequency. Blue Kyanite can help cleanse and align all your chakras. It helps connect with and express your inner truth.
This blue crystal releases negative attachments and cuts etheric cords. It also anchors the higher chakras, helping you embody your spiritual identity.
LIBYAN DESERT GLASS
This is another form of Tektite, also knows as Libyan Gold Tektite. It’s not as common as the black ones but still more affordable than Moldavite. The origin is not certain but it’s believed to be a meteor(s) that impacted the Sahara desert millions of years ago.
This is another high vibe gemstone that cleanses the chakras and raises your vibration. Like all Tektites, it’s linked to extraterrestrial energy and attracts starseeds. Libyan Desert Glass is a powerful spiritual activation crystal that helps you release what’s holding you back.
This is also known as Satin Spar. All forms of Selenite are highly spiritual energy cleansers. This clear to white crystal is another high vibration, yet easily available and affordable Moldavite alternative.
It connects you with the higher dimensions and blasts through stubborn energetic blocks. Selenite connects you with the higher dimensions and helps you receive spiritual downloads. It’s also a beautiful crystal of peace and tranquillity.
Meteorites can vary in price but some are reasonable considering you have a shooting star in your hand. There are rare and expensive ones that have Olivine crystals inside them, these are crystals from other planets (unlike Tektites).
All metallic Meteorites help ground and anchor your spiritual energy. They connect you with cosmic and extraterrestrial energy and knowledge.
The last one of our Moldavite alternatives is Labradorite. This colour shifting crystal is another easily available stone of transformation. Labradorite helps you gradually transform into your authentic self.
It helps you move through life changes with more ease and navigate any unexpected changes that come your way. Labradorite cleanses and protects your aura. It opens your third eye chakra and your awareness of other dimensions.
This article is not telling you not to buy Moldavite. It was written as a response to those who have told me they can no longer afford Moldavite and want to know of alternative crystals they could work with that have similar energy or properties.
I really hope this shows you there are other alternatives to Moldavite out there. If you have a question or comment you can post it below (PLEASE keep any questions you have concise and stick to this blog post topic if you want a response).
