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!

Coming Attractions – Week 4 • Design

Tanzanite CabochonsThis high gem quality Tanzanite is usually set in gold. I plan to combine it with glowing Rainbow Moonstone to make ethereal sterling silver necklaces and bracelets. The blue shimmer from the moonstone will compliment the mystical, purplish blue sparkle from the Tanzanite. This unique combination is a sure winner!

 

Dragon Pendant

This will be set in sterling silver as a designer dragon pendant.

I found this Raw Labradorite in the rough bursting with fire and decided that it is a perfect match for a dragon motif. I am accenting it with Pyrite Druzi that matches with a gold and blue fire of its own. Kyanite and free form Citrine perfectly balance this mythical look.

 

 

 

 

Pheonix Rising

Phoenix Fire Bird

Here is a CAD picture of our new Phoenix Fire Bird rising upwards.
As the sun sets only to rise again, so the Crimson Fire Bird, known as the Phoenix, rises from the ashes of its past infused with renewed energy and strength. Her fiery feathers and a crimson Garnet gemstone enhance her magnificence.

I collect this sea glass myself, from an island in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Massachusetts.
I call it Vanishing Sea Glass because since the 1800’s it was a regular practice to throw discarded glass into the sea. In the past 50 years it has been banned. To find rounded enough pieces of sea glass in a bright color is becoming a rare find. Glass from the 1800’s can range from a light purple to deep blue. The most common sea glass found now is frosted white and different shades of green. Much of the lighter, softer green is from old coke bottles from the early 1900s. A lot of the brown sea glass comes from beer bottles. Dark blue would most likely be from medicine bottles.

My Latest Collection of Atlantic Ocean Sea Glass

Every summer my brother and I ride out in his boat to a special island where large barges used to burn refuse after throwing all the glass overboard. The sea would break up and churn the glass shards, rubbing them against the rough rocks and sand with its waves.

Sea Glass Earrings

Here is an example of natural sea glass with ocean themed motif.

After 50 to over 100 years of this natural tumbling process, we bring you beautiful vanishing sea glass set in sterling silver and adorned with silver starfish, swordfish, seahorse and shells. Stay tuned for our newest designs that should be ready in about 4 to 6 weeks.

 

 

Polishing the stoneI am not drinking from that bottle! It is connected to the polishing wheel to keep it moist while polishing the stones.

I assure that each stone has a high shiny polish.

I have just returned from my trip and would love to hear from you. Please e-mail or call me with any questions or suggestions.

Peace and Abundance,
