Can A Moldavite Crystal Stop Working?

by Cardell
(Chicago, IL)

I bought a Moldavite crystal because I learned that it could help with lucid dreaming. When I found about its other aspects, I became curious to see if it would affect me the way it had so many others.

And sure enough, I felt very "spaced out" after wearing it for the first couple of days. Then I seemed to adjust to its energy and could wear it for long periods of time with no problem.

After wearing it for a few months, I did get some ideas about new directions to pursue, although I can't say for sure that was the result of wearing the Moldavite.

But since that time, I have not felt any energy while wearing the crystal nor have I gotten any new ideas that could lead to a higher level of consciousness.

Has the Moldavite done its job and switched off? Or maybe the crystal is just not for me at this time. I'm wondering if it's time to pass it on to someone else.

In my opinion a stone does not quit working, however, they may not be what you need for the time being. It may have served its purpose. Moldavite is a very powerful stone and is not for the novice. The energy you felt from it at first stands to reason.

My suggestion is to put it aside for a while and one day you will need it again. It is also my suggestion not to pass it on. If you do, however, please cleanse it before hand. Peace

Moldavite Crystal - I Would Not Pass It On
by: Vivien

Hi, concerning the Moldavite crystal, the only thing I would like to say is that personally I would not pass it on to anyone else. - I feel that when you have been drawn to any stone you should keep it then for yourself. - If you feel that it isn't working for you at this moment in time = put it away somewhere safe.

Try wearing another crystal for a while, then at a later date give the Moldavite another try. - Personally I have a lot of different crystals and I can't wear them all at the same time, so I change them about. = Don't give them away because at sometime you will be drawn back to a certain stone. - and remember to clean them too (I do it under clear running water)

Please try putting this awesome stone in your window so it can be recharged in the full moonlight or the sunlight can do it as well. Sometimes I clear a stone with sage as you do a room. I share a very special Amethyst with people who come to my presentations at Holistic Fairs and so there are a lot of peoples energies touching it.

I clear my Amethyst after each fair so it is ready to go again for the next fair with pure energy. I bought a rabbit pelt to wrap around this crystal in the beginning just for protection then I found that the Amethyst really loved it and when I would pass this crystal around to share without the fur, it asked for the rabbit fur to go with it. I loved finding that out... Crystals all have their own personalities just like people do!!!

I am not sure how long ago this question was hope I am in time.

All crystals choose their owners and sometimes they do move from owner to owner. With regard to whether the stone can stop it won't. Ensure you cleanse it. Put it on your windowsill on the night of a full moon this will recharge it for you. Do not wash it - Moldavites are not big fans of water.

I have a pendant which I wore every day when I first bought it then one morning I knew it was time to have a break - so I wrapped it up and waited for the next point of change in my life. Once the call to wear it arrived I took it out and put it back on.

I really hope this helps..

From time to time, I have found that when I feel my Moldavite has stopped working, or I am starting to be uncomfortable wearing it, it is time to wash it under running water until I feel clear. Or time to set it aside until I feel that I am in need of a change since I have applied what I learned the last time I had been wearing it. Hope this helps!

I am not sure if my Moldavite is working or not... all I feel is a warm heated flush, which could be Menopause! How do I really know for sure, I been wearing a large pendant and earrings and I just am not experiencing what I have read!

When wearing my Moldavite, I wear pink Kunzite and Black Tourmaline for protection, I worn both pieces all day for the last few days with not experiencing to much of anything. Any advice out there, please. Thank you, Love and Light!

Projecting Energy With Moldavite
by: Anonymous

Get comfortable with one...communicate with it...last step is to allow it to work with you and you with it. In your mind you create 3 to 6" width for the Moldavite... transmute its size to a width that you both feel balanced with, the practitioner person is to create a holy truth rod which you can direct the negative energy into competent hands.

Need Help with my Moldavite please
by: Rick

Just acquired (bought) my Moldavite a couple days ago. I've been carrying it in the pocket of my dress pants all day at work, for 2 days. I'm feeling nothing. Not even when I hold it in my hand for about 15 minutes. I need an education... how to carry it, cleansing, charging... all help is fair game! I'm eager to learn.

From Liz (site owner and writer). Put it under your pillow while you sleep, and you may be stunned by the changes you find happen in your life. Have you read my page on Moldavite ... here

It's a form of glass so can be cleansed like quartz, just rinse under running water. Not everyone can feel Moldavite at first, but often the effects can be felt.

All the best Liz

Thanks, Liz
by: Rick

Liz, thanks for the speedy response. In fact, I have read the link you provided, and I'm continuing to read it several more times so that the information sinks in fully. I'll definitely try it under my pillow, as well. Also, I've been under a lot of stress lately. Maybe I just need to relax, focus, meditate and be a bit more open to subtle changes rather than immediate and drastic changes.

Thanks again!

I had a piece of Moldavite made into a pendant and I took it down from my hanger today to wear it and noticed it has turned black. The pendant has a quartz to clear it, but why?

Moldavite and Water
by: Jac

I do not recommend washing your Moldavite crystal under running water. Instead look into other ways of cleansing it. I just took a shower with my Moldavite crystal necklace on, and immediately knew that the Moldavite was NOT a fan of water. At all.

I felt really guilty about it actually and immediately dried it off and googled it. (: I found myself here due to Soo's comment, and I would definitely say I agree with her (:

Moldavite Authetication
by: Anonymous

Hi there, i have a question relating to Moldavite too. I have just bought a piece of Moldavite and although this took some time to research what I thought was a seller of authentic Moldavite, how do I know it is actually real? I cannot say I have felt anything when I held it in my hand. I now have it on a chain wearing it round my neck.

The shop I bought this from appears to be genuine but I cannot be 100% that the piece is authentic. Other than to look at, is there any other way of knowing if the Moldavite is genuine?

Some tips on getting a real moldavite
by: Bluejay

I recently got mine from Inner Vision Crystals and had my doubts at first. Im in the Philippines and ot took quite awhile to get here. The person I talked to at IVC was very helpful and im happy it all turned out good. But back to you question as to how to tell its real, one thing I noticed it that the rough stone does not look like glass and mine was almost an inch wide and it looks black without a spotlight from behind. Also the genuine one will likely have bubbles in it and other imperfections this is what sets it apart from manmade glass. After spending some time with it I do feel whats called moldavite flush and it feel I have a high blood or something but I generaly have normal to low blood. And lastly, I was unexplainably drawn to it. Like hypnotised to having it. Could be its majestic green glow under a light which I could not resist. Cheers! Love and light to you all!

My Moldivite shrank and fell out of it setting
by: Edie Sertich

I was lucky enough for my Moldivite to find me, it is a ring set in a very old hand forged very very solid silver setting and I found it about 6 yrs ago while recycling. Its a very powerful stone that took me a to a place in my spirituality that I can and do say "I GET IT".

Well my sister got very sick, and they put her in a nursing home... I believe to die. I put my Moldavite ring on her, and she was back home and in her own apt 3 months later.

It took so much energy for my Moldivite to save her that the stone itsself shrunk, and fell out of the solid setting it was in. I don't feel the energy it had before this occured and would like to kno w how to revive it!

Hello Edie, that would be the first account of me hearing that a Moldavite would shrink in size with great use. Is it possible that other explanations exist? Been using moldavite for a couple of months constantly wearing it around my neck. Seem to have improved my metabolism. My hands are constantly war but I also practiced Tai Chi before and it did have that effect. Seems to be related to how you breathe. But back to the point, I dont think Moldavite would shrink on its own. love and Light to you all.

My Moldavite Is Not Working
by: pokemon

My Moldavite is on a pendent and it is not working. I don't feel everything from it I cleanse it I leave it alone for 10 days or more nothing. When I first picked it up I felt a bit in my hand so what does that mean? thanks

Moldavite is Powerful
by: DWG-Healer

Hello! I am a natural intuitive healer and earth energy worker. I have read several of the questions and answers for moldavite and from experience I am compelled to comment. Even basic research on line for the metaphysical properties of moldavite provides you with some warnings.

Please take these seriously. As with all energies, not to be afraid, but to understand the properties first before you spend your hard earned money. Moldavite is extremely powerful, it is of the highest vibration.

If you do not understand the metaphysical properties of "high vibration" crystals then please reconsider. Moldavite will/can change your life, your world. Someone mentioned that at first they felt something, but then it stopped. You have adapted to it's energy, you have bonded with it.

Now you must allow it the time to work it's stuff. Over time you will start to see changes in your life, small at first. Be ready for change! before you wear it.

Cleansing Gemstones

Unless it is of the Quartz family or another water-proof stone beware of water. Also, be very careful about what stones you put in the sun, as Amethyst, and others will fade.

Two methods I use are sound ... I have a Tibetan gong I use ... and also, unless the stone have oil from your hands for some reason, putting stones in/on a large geode or on Selenite will bring them back to life, if left there for a while.

Moonlight is great but I worry about forgetting them outside and them getting rained on or dew, so I don't use that as much as I'd like.

If a stone has been used for a long time and/or for a huge job, put the stone in a completely WATER-PROOF container and bury in the Earth for 3-6 months (not during freezing weather).

Or you can try leaving on top of a stone that is never used for healing, etc., for 6 months to a year and it should become renewed. If it does not, you can "retire" the stone and have it on a shelf.

My stones do not like being put away ... they are out on shelves everywhere to get "air" and be talked to each day. But whatever floats your boat.

As far as passing them along, it is fine to give the stone to someone else if it has served its purpose with you. A lot of people give stones as gifts and that it how they find the next person they are to assist. Intention trumps all so you can breath the Breath Of God on them to clear them as well.

Moldavite Tricks for stronger impact
by: Mya

I found a way to have a POW in my dreams with Moldavite. I put my head at the foot of the bed so there would be room for a chair at the foot of my bed where my head now was.

I put the largest clear quartz crystal I have on the chair and put my small Moldavite on the quartz. I had the quartz crystal point to the top of my head. WHAT A NIGHT I HAD!

I had the best dreams I've had in YEARS! I woke up refreshed and rested sooner than usual too! Deep restful sleep. Best I've had in years and the dreams were spectacular!

If you want your Moldavite to have a stronger effect on you, couple it with clear quartz when you're wearing it too. I have a medicine bag with many little, tumbled, clear quartz mixed in with my Moldavite. (Quartz amplifies any crystal it is coupled with.)

Something else you may need to know, Moldavite never stops working. As you get used to it, you may think it stopped working at times, but I assure you, it is still working.

Don't forget to charge it often! Moldavite does need regular charging if you are wearing it all the time. Laying it on the quartz overnight, as I described, will also charge it as it works for you and your dreams.

Good luck!

by: JAY

I have a collection of modavites, I find by rotating the time I spend with them on a regular basis helps keep the energies fresh. When they are resting I place them on a bed of selenite. I am never without a moldavite on me. I feel naked with out them. Love the stone. ☆☆☆☆☆•☆☆☆☆☆

Don't put in water use moonlight
by: Anonymous

If you feel moldivite is not working after you clear and cleanse, could be that it's a fake there are a lot of fakes due to its rarity. Check with a trusted crystal shop or jeweler. Also moldavite doesn't like water, I put it under water and it flew out of my hand as if something slapped it out very violently, it didn't even fall down in the sink but rather behind me on the floor, moonlight works best

by: Angel M


I thought when I bought it has no effect on me. I've tried to meditate and feel its vibration. first I held it on my fingertips on my left, nothing. Switched to right and felt it held it between my thumb and pointing finger. At first it will emit heat. Then you will slowly hear your pulse. The feeling that Moldy pumps something into your veins. It is too powerful made my whole arm numb.

Anyways good luck on your crystals, It seems Herkimers amplify Moldavites too. While tourmaline is good for grounding, it is good if you do not like to feel lightheaded.
