Moldavite Explosion Revealed!

Esprit Creations Natural Moldavite slices in freeform shapes just like an ethereal meteorite.

A lady recently bought one of our Moldavite Rings from my customer’s store. She heard about fake Moldavite being passed off as real Moldavite in some places, so she wrote me asking about our Esprit Creations Moldavite. It inspired me to share this interesting information with everyone.

Thank you for your inquiry about our Esprit Creations Moldavite.

Original Moldavite is a type of Tektite. Tektite means molten, so Moldavite is a combination of melted earth particles, silica and various metal oxides. It is mostly found in the vacinity of the Moldou/Vltava River Valley in the Czech Republic.

It was naturally formed about 15 million years ago when a gigantic meteorite comet collided with the Earth in that region. The fiery explosive impact forced Earth particles to shoot out extremely high into space, mixing and melting into parts of the red-hot blazing meteorite. As the particles fell back to Earth, they cooled and solidified in and around the same area in the Czech Republic. That’s why it is said that Moldavite is born from celestial fire. It is the sacred, explosive unity of Sky and Earth.

Notice the naturally uneven patterns and texture created by the fusion of sky and earth.

We get our Moldavite from a miner who lives in the Czech Republic. There, they call Moldavite “Vltavin” because of the Moldau/Vltava River Valley where it is found. When I get my stones from him, Vltavin is marked on the bags. I only get my Moldavite from this source because then I can guarantee my customers that it is natural.

Because Moldavite is a limited resource, good quality natural Moldavite is becoming more difficult to find. As a result, there is imitation moldavite being artificially manufactured in China and Thailand. Because Moldavite has been naturally formed much like glass, through short blasts of intense heat, it is easy to try to imitate. It is being sold in the market as real Moldavite, and it can be difficult to discern.

• Usually imitation Moldavite has a very consistent pattern and matrix, as well as a shiny, glassier look. Each piece of natural Moldavite has very uneven patterns and no two pieces look alike.
• The “bubbly” patterns on fake Moldavite are on the surface, whereas natural Moldavite has bubbles that have been formed inside and are always random sizes.
• Fake moldavite is often a brighter green, whereas natural Moldavite is mostly dark olive green.

These are some of the ways how you can tell the difference. It is better to be knowledgeable rather than depending on a certificate, because even some of the certificates are falsely reproduced.

A Winning Combination- Natural olive green Moldavite and crystal clear Herkimer Diamond Quartz.

Metaphysically, Moldavite is said to encourage inner awareness and aid in reaching constructive goals. Because it was born from an explosion of chaos, yet cooled into a soothing gemstone, it helps to settle disputes or disruptions in our life’s journey.

Enjoy your Moldavite piece of jewelry from Esprit Creations. Now when you show it off you have an interesting story to tell your friends!

Esprit Creations Gives Back

Esprit Creations family is dedicated to supporting and sustaining education and care projects.

I travel regularly to India where I sit together with my artisans to complete my designs. My husband, Subhas, is originally from there, so working together with family and old friends enables us to keep our products fairly traded and fairly priced. Through the years we’ve helped our suppliers grow their business. Together we share in each other’s success.

Through Esprit Creations, two young girls are receiving a full scholarship to complete their education and work skills. We also are involved in supporting other projects that the school offers to the poor like the distribution of free food, amenities, and job opportunities.

Our daughters, Ganga and Jamuna, regularly volunteer at the village school and animal shelter whenever they visit. Just last month they launched their own plan to offer educational and work opportunities to a struggling family whose father had passed away. The mother, Meera, is a seamstress living in one room with her son and daughter. My girls arranged for the young girl to attend the Sandipani Muni School with full scholarship to graduate.

They also engaged Meera in a productive work project. They bought a large amount of beautiful block printed cotton material that they designed for their own fashion clothes business, GanJam Tribe, and engaged Meera in sewing cute, simple cotton bags with their own GanJam Tribe label attached. They paid Meera for her sewing work, and as the bags sell she will receive a portion of the profits. The girls plan to advertise the bags for $3.00 each. 100% of the profits will be divided between the family, the school, and their favorite animal shelter from the same village. Our family’s mission is to give our best to the world.

Crystals and Chakras Meet Ayurveda

The fantastic book Ayurveda & Aromatherapy  by Dr. Light Miller, ND and Bryan Miller, DC  inspired me to create a list of how the main chakra stones influence our energy forces or “Doshas”.  In the science of Ayurveda, there are basically three energy forces or “Doshas” made up of a combination of the universal elements;

Ether/Air = Vata
Fire/Water = Pitta
Water/Earth = Kapha

Although we have a mixture of the three Doshas, each one of us has a prominent energy force.  When our Doshas are in balance, we are healthy physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.  Genuine gemstones are also created with vibrational energy forces. Chakra gemstone crystals emanate specific positive energy that can influence and nourish our Doshas. Here is a list of some main Chakra Gemstones and how they affect and protect our life’s energy forces.

Crystals • Chakras • Doshas

Amethyst • Crown Chakra • Enlightenment
Ether/Air  Vata: improves immune function, giving stamina.
Fire/Water  Pitta: calm nervous system, quiets obsessions.
Water/Earth  Kapha: assists smooth transitions.

Sapphire, Lapis, Azurite, Iolite • Third Eye Chakra • Intuition
Ether/Air Vata: offers stability.
Fire/Water Pitta: reduces anger and inspire creativity.
Water/Earth Kapha: enhances self-worth, encourages fluidity.

Aquamarine, Turquoise, Blue Topaz • Throat Chakra • Communication
Ether/Air Vata: eases fears, strengthens lungs, encourages expression.
Fire/Water Pitta: motivates listening abilities and sweet speech.
Water/Earth Kapha: balances liver function/reduces bitterness in speech.

Jade, Peridot, Adventurine • Heart Chakra • Kindness, Nurture, Love
Ether/Air Vatta: Jade is not the best stone for Vatta. Peridot and Adventurine balances emotions.
Fire/Water Pitta: reduces excess heat, fever and inflammation.
Water/Earth Kapha: increases productivity and sharing.

Citrine • Solar Plexus Chakra • Source of Energy
Ether/Air Vatta: offers assurance to make decisions.
