This is a beautiful natural Moldavite shard artfully wrapped in a tension forged 14kt gold wire wrap. This is a wonderful stone that has a truly unique shape and creation. It has a lovely translucent olive green color and a natural pitted surface. The natural olive color is highlighted by the swirling waves of 14kt gold which securely grasp the stone and really make it pop.
Scientifically, moldavite is a very rare stone indeed. It is a natural glass which was made by the extreme heat and pressure of a huge meteorite that fell in central Europe about 14 million years ago. Moldavite is mineralogically to the group of tektites however it is the only translucent type of tektite with its beautiful shades of green. All other tektites are a dark brownish opaque color.
Metaphysically, moldavite is good for counteracting cynicism and connects even the most world weary adult with the wonders of the universe. It works extremely well in combination with other stones, especially with the crystalline energies of quartz. Finally, moldavite is a powerful aid in both meditation and dreamwork.
My wire work is all done by me in a tension forging technique using a hammer and anvil. I have been using this technique for almost 17 years with great results. I call it tension forging because all that holds the piece securely in the wrap is the tension of the wire. It is a single piece of wire and there is no glue or solder added making it exceedingly organic while still remaining very secure.
