Tektites are not gemstones as we usually understand them. Being a product of an extraterrestrial impact into the Earth, tektites are a fascinating blend of terrestrial and extraterrestrial materials. Sometimes, the tektite matrix will be almost entirely extraterrestrial material, resulting in pitting and other textures. Sometimes, it will contain inclusions of minerals or other materials. One common way to identify tektite is by its excessively low water content. While obsidian froths and expands in heat due to its water content, tektite simply fuses to another piece of glass. Some lampwork artisans have added pendant loops to tektites in this way, removing the need to drill them for use.
Tektites have different names, based on their locations. Most were named before mineralogists and other scientists understood they were all being created the same way, and were the same "stone." Pale or bright green ones from southern Bohemia are called moldavite; brown ones from Billiton Island near Borneo are called billitonite; olive green to black ones from Tasmania are called Darwinites or Queenstownites. American tektites include: North American paras (Chesapeake Bay), Bediasites (Texas) and Georgiaites (Georgia). Tektites can be found in Europe, Australia, South Africa, Tasmania, the Philippines and many other locations which have experienced meteorite impacts.
Tektites keep us grounded while also connecting us to the stars! It encourages us to be open to extrasensory phenomena, particularly telepathy and clairvoyance, as well as communication with extraterrestrials and inter-dimensional beings. Tektites are psychic tools, allowing us to explore the spiritual implications of moving beyond the normal space/time continuum and into the realm of pure energy. It can expand our consciousness during meditation, and integrate that sensation into our physical body and daily life. Tektites can also reverse a chakra that is spinning in the wrong direction and balance the energy flow within our body.
Tektite helps us quickly shake off old baggage from bad experiences and jump-start our positive emotional transformation. It whispers softly and shouts happily about how good it feels to finally be FREE. Tektite encourages us to be ourselves and to celebrate our own incredible beauty and talents. Tektite attracts new friendships and partnerships and ensures that both individuals benefit from the relationship, receiving kindness and good counsel from one another. Tektite helps us become more “lucky” in our social connections, which can in turn lead to better luck in our romantic, career, and financial lives.
