So, in Tuscon I found a small piece of black Tourmaline and an awesome Moldavite within 10 minutes of each other. I do not own any of either mineral. I felt like I shouldn’t take them because someone might come looking for them, but they were in spots I knew no one would find them again. I knew…
It sounds like whoever lost the Moldavite, likely lost the Tourmaline. It is quite possible what whoever lost them may have been A) highly superstitious and trying to rid themselves of said stones or B) were highly superstitious and carried them bother, however, unbeknownst to said person, there was a hole in their pocket and they did not realize they lost said stone. Which seems likely.
Or not… It could just be that of all of the Moldavite in the world that has not a single piece of Tourmaline near it naturally, this is the most powerful and it attracted the tourmaline via unknown forces. :D
They were found in different locations but within 10 minutes. Both on table surfaces so I would rule out the hole in the pocket/bag. It’s quite mysterious.
So, in Tuscon I found a small piece of black Tourmaline and an awesome Moldavite within 10 minutes of each other. I do not own any of either mineral. I felt like I shouldn’t take them because someone might come looking for them, but they were in spots I knew no one would find them again. I knew Moldavite was “extraterrestrial”, but didn’t know much, so I looked up more info about it. Here is an interesting page that has a range of info about Moldavite that says:
“It is thought that moldavite was created from the re-melted rock around the fall site of the meteorite and often the sites where it is found tends to be in a rounded or disc shape which could also lend to the idea that this is where a meteorite actually hit. Other areas where the moldavite have been found that don’t fit this description are thought to be a result of magma flying through the air or rock displaced during impact.”
It’s pretty awesome that this is formed from the impact of a meteorite. People that do get into metaphysical properties tend to share the idea that Moldavite has special properties due to it’s extraterrestrial creation. While I’m not sure how I feel about metaphysical aspects, I did discuss Moldavite with people I was on my trip with, and some stayed clear of Moldavite because of how powerful they felt it was in their experience. I read more about metaphysical aspects and one site suggested you pair Moldavite with……. wait for it……. BLACK TOURMALINE in order to ground it. (the other mineral I found a few minutes prior!!). Believe what you want, but I find that to be WILD.
Please share what you guys think about this story or Moldavite in general.
