TikTok is completely OBSESSED with a crystal known as moldavite at the moment– however, the best way to describe this crystal is: hectic.

If it were a person, moldavite would be that crazy aunt or uncle in your family who comes to family gatherings and just ruins everything. Within five minutes, they’ve insulted someone, broken something, and made children cry.

So with that in mind, if you’re wanting to enjoy the moldavite craze without the crazy, why not check out our tektite tumbles instead?

Is Tektite a Moldavite?

It is actually the opposite – moldavite is a type of tektite that ranges in colour from brown-green to bottle green.

Tektite and moldavite come from the same family of crystals-that-aren’t-really-crystals, as specimens from the tektite family are believed to be formed when meteorites crash landed to earth.

The term tektite comes from the Greek word tektos meaning ‘molten’, as the molten material of the meteorite solidifies upon entry to earth to form tektites – a natural volcanic glass. 

What's the Difference Between Tektite and Moldavite?

Features of Tektite:

Colour: Found in black, silver, green, and metallic grey hues.
Found in: Tektites have been found in three major areas of the world – south-east Asia, Australasia, North America and West Africa.

What is Tektite Good For?

Tektite is a great crystal to utilise for those who have a little more experience in meditation, healing and work with crystal vibrations.

Like moldavite, tektite stones also resonate at a high frequency. Tektite can be helpful in improving psychic powers and recalling dreams.

It is also beneficial for clearing negative energy, promoting the balance and flow of energy within your body and helping you to think clearer.

How to Work with Tektite

While normal tektite is a less hectic crystal to work with than moldavite, we still recommend trying out some other great stones and crystals first if you are new to your crystal journey, as powerful pieces like tektite have a strong energy that can really impact someone who isn’t familiar with crystals.

Tektite can be used in crystal healing, to improve fertility, open your Third Eye chakra for communication with the spirit world, and to release any energy holding you back in life.

If you are working with tektite, we recommend you also incorporate a crystal such as black tourmaline, hematite, obsidian, smoky quartz or tiger eye to help keep you grounded and protected.

    Thank you so much for your “Welcome to the family!” note! You have no idea (well, maybe you do!) what it means to get a hand-written note in an order for something you’re going to love anyway….
    You and your team rock (oh dear-sorry for the awful pun…we’re all better than that)!
