Stones from space, such as tektites and meteorites, are some of the most interesting materials used by crystal healers.
Most people interested in crystals are familiar with the luxurious, green Tektite called Moldavite. It’s an amazingly high vibrational stone that enhances meditation, deepens your connection with spirit, and even facilitates communication with your spirit guides.
But did you know that there are other tektites as well?
Libyan Desert glass is an amazing golden Tektite found along the Libyan-Egyptian border. It was formed in the same way as other tektites: a meteorite collided with the earth, creating a natural glass. This material was prized by the ancient Egyptians. It is most commonly associated with enlightenment, spiritual ascension, past-life recall, self-awareness, and karmic release.
Another popular Tektite is Darwin Glass. This transparent, greenish-brown Tektite variety is from Tasmania. It is used for meditation and remaining grounded and centered.
There are also a wide variety of gray to black meteorites found throughout Asia. These include Indochinite Tektites, Guandong Tektites, and others. These ethereal stones are great for promoting self-reflection, facilitating astral travel. They can also help you to see a situation from another point of view.
Because of their celestial origin, Tektites and meteorites share qualities relating to the upper chakras, spirituality, and the exploration of consciousness.
Similar to tektites, there are many varieties of meteorites: stony (chondrite), not stony (achondrite), and iron.
Iron meteorites are great for connecting to the energy and wisdom of your ancestors, enhancing shamanic journeying, and staying grounded during astral travel.
Chondrite meteorites enhance peaceful attitudes and promote feelings of safety and security.
Achondrite meteorites help you find order in times of chaos.
Tektites and meteorites are best used during meditation, or kept in your pillowcase (or on your bedside table) while sleeping. Alternatively you can use these stones to create a crystal grid. Placing these powerful stones in a sacred geometric formation really amplifies their energy, working to create an energy that’s stronger than the sum of the parts. This is especially useful to create a background energy for activities like shamanic journey and lucid dreaming.
Cathy Douglas had this to share:
Tektites are a type of glassy meteorite formed when a meteorite hits the earth. The heat from the impact melts terrestrial silica-bearing materials, which get spewed out into the air. There it quickly cools, forming a type of glass. This glass contains other terrestrial minerals, and sometimes even traces of extraterrestrial ones. Some tektites have special names, like the Libyan desert glass of the Sahara or the Darwin glass of Tasmania. While tektites from different locations have distinctive qualities, we can generalize certain properties that are common to most: tektites work with both the root and third eye chakras, and are helpful for grounding and protection, shielding the aura, and psychic and intuitive skills. A small piece under your pillow can be a great tool for dream recall or lucid dreaming.
Moldavite is a special, forest-green tektite. This tektite was the result of an asteroid impact almost 15 million years ago — an impact so powerful it sent molten aluminum-laced silicon dioxide flying into the air, where it quickly took form and solidified. Moldavite, which comes only from the Czech Republic has a very high frequency that causes some people to experience strong reactions. The rarest specimens are known as “angel chimes“; pieces will actually “ring” if dropped onto a sheet of glass. Moldavite is a stone of spiritual transformation, traditionally used in ritual objects. Pieces even appeared at the same site as the Venus of Willendorf. Even though it’s not a crystal, moldavite is considered one of the most high-energy, high-vibrational minerals.
