It's been quiet on here because I was busy graduating this weekend - Roll Tide!
Now that I have my MLIS, I am an official shusher :)
So, Monday's are for herbs and other ingredients that I use in The Silver Cord.
Today we will learn more about Moldavite and it's properties.
Moldavite isn't an herb, but a stone of sorts.
It can be worn or used in incense.
So what is it exactly??
According to eHow:
"Occurring over the Moldau Valley of the Czech Republic approximately 20 million years ago, a powerful meteor shower caused this region to be covered in small, green, glass-like objects called tektites. The classification of tektite that is specific to this region is called moldavite.
Considered the rarest mineral-like gems on Earth, moldavite is like no other specimen found on our planet. It has been prized throughout history, and today moldavite is still fashioned into jewelry. Some believe that moldavite carries special properties that can aid the wearer on their spiritual journey."

"The metaphysical properties are:
• Cosmic consciousness
• Crystal consciousness
• Dimensional travel
• Healing applications
• Heart chakra
• Inner journeys
Moldavite is known by healers and gem lovers across the world for its unusually powerful energetic and mystical properties. Moldavite energies fuse easily with the breath thus moldavite has a reputation for clearing oxygen related illness and discomfort. Others say that because of its high vibration, moldavite can be used to open, clear and balance any chakra. Some have reported people becoming anxious around moldavite; grounding is key to working with higher light stones."
In the book, I discussed using the incense rather than the actual stone. It has been put in bath salts, incense and candles, as well as jewelry. It can be purchased online or in most metaphysical stores.
I am currently being interviewed for The Silver Cord and will post it here as soon as it is out.
Have a great day!
