The asteroid hit the earth 15 million years ago in what is now known as the Ries Crater in Barvaria (Germany). The material from the impact was sent flying into the atmosphere, cooled down & formed the melted glass into what is now called Moldavite.The splash field or primarily landing of the melted crystals returning to earth is in the areas of South Bohemia (Czech Republic). Moldavite is not found in any other region on the earth. Moldavite has been used since Stone Age times as a talisman and amulet for good fortune. Many people believe that it came to aid in earth's transition and healing and that the time has come to use Moldavite's energies wisely. It can greatly enhance the effect of other crystals, taking them to their highest vibration. The green glass cup known as the Holy Grail at the last supper is believed by some to have been moldavite.
