Stones from Space: Using Tektites & Meteorites for Healing & More
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.
More About Tektites:
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.

I use my Moldavite as a necless and it is a major energyboost for me. I was struggeling with depression and fatique to the extent that i couldnt funktion at work, but after just a few hours i was up and running with an amazingly good mood. Over the next three days i completely renovated and made my healingstudio and started up my practise that i had dreamt about for two years. There has been 3 times where i suddenly found myself getting back pannic attacs and really low on energy and every time i found out i had forgotten to put my moldavite bk on after i showered.
That is really cool, Elin- thank you SO much for sharing! Moldavite is an incredibly powerful and unique stone and we’re so glad you’ve had such great results with it!! <3 Crystal blessings 🙂
I started to think about the pieces of Moldavite I have and surprised myself with how much I actually have. My first and most favorite piece is a small pendant set with a tiny cut ruby as a companion stone. Great, balanced feeling. I recently went kinda nuts and aquired several more pieces. There is a simple, plain pendant and earrings that I don’t feel bad wearing to work. Then there is another pendant and a ring, both set with Moldavite, a piece of Campo del Cielo meteorite, and a Herkimer.
I usually let the stones tell me what I need to wear. They usually zing me when touched. When worn, they tend to give me a nice “buzz”. They also can make feel a little high or heavenly. Does that make sense? My physical energy seems more balanced and easier to maintain. I don’t feels as tired or stressed out from the workday. I do find that I need time away from them to come back down after a week or so.
I like the spacy vibe I get from all of the otherworldly stones. I routinely carry a Tibetan tektite in my pocket. I sleep with one too. I feel like the negative vibes can’t reach me when I’ve got them. I also carry black tourmaline in my pocket.
I handed my friend a piece just to see her reaction to it. She’s never held it before in her life, and she was amazed at the strong physical sensation in her hand. I think she just might need a piece herself!
Wow! Thanks so much for sharing. Your many Moldavite pieces sound AMAZING, Betsy! It’s such a powerful stone and we completely know what you mean 😉
