Moldavite is one of the better-known tektites, loved for its rich olive green to dull green colour and delicate feathered external texture. Found in Moldau, Czechoslovakia this tektite corresponds to the Ries Crater in Germany where the impact is believed to have been some 15 million years ago.
Tektites are generally translucent to opaque black, brown, grey, yellow and occasionally green in colour. Their chemical compositions are similar to both granite and impure sandstone (greywacke) or soils of these compositions, oxide and lesser iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium and Titanium. A homogenous glass, the name tektite comes from the Greek word ‘tektos’, meaning ‘molten‘. This hard, lightweight material has been found in artefacts across the world, jewellery items, totem stones and fashioned into arrowheads and small blades by fracturing the surface into curved shapes with a fine edge.
Although small and unassuming, part of a tektite’s mystique is the unknown. The age of formation and constant surface morphology of our planet can make it hard to identify exactly how they got here and when it all took place. The most popular theory on the ‘how’ suggests an extremely massive meteoric impact, splashing the melted ground rock up into the atmosphere before raining back down onto the earth. The hot malleable material acquires aerodynamic shapes on their return journey to the earth’s surface before settling in a strewn held reflecting the initial trajectory of the meteorite. This results in a plethora of unique shapes and forms including spheres, dumbbells, teardrops, discs, buttons and boomerangs, each a result of their unique journey of height, distance and speed. Their shapes along with external textures of pit marks, hollow cavities, fine crusts, grooves and edges are used to identify them.
Although crystals have survived hundreds of thousands to millions of years (wow) in our earth they are still delicate and must be treated with TLC.

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.
Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators.
The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing.
Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.
We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
