Description

This moldavite gemstone features a signature dark, moss-green color that makes an eye-catching addition to any design and is complementary to a variety of gemstone colors. Because it is rated at just 5.5 on the Mohs scale, moldavite is best suited for jewelry items that are not subject to hard knocks or rough handling; ideal for stick pins, brooches, pendants or earrings.

Moldavite is a volcanic glass that forms due to the collision of a meteorite and the Earth's crust. Named for the Moldau river in Czechoslovakia, near the place it was first discovered, moldavite is the only known tektite glass (glass formed as the result of an interplanetary collision) suitable for faceting into gemstone and presents a deep, moss-green color. Believed by some to have powerful metaphysical characteristics, this stone is credited with transformational power, with activating dreams and the heart chakra, and offering emotional balance and more.

Round-cut gemstones are highly popular and the most commonly available. Rio round gemstones are calibrated for size and hand inspected to ensure maximum attractiveness.
