History: Meteorites are a natural object originating in outer space that survives impact with the Earth’s surface. Most meteorites derive from small astronomical objects called meteoroids, but are also produced by impacts of asteroids. Meteorites that are recovered after being observed as they fall to Earth are called falls. There are approximately 1,200 witnessed falls showing up as specimens in the world’s collections. All other meteorites are known as finds. There are over 39,000 documented meteorite finds. Meteorite classifications are divided into groups according to their structure, chemical, isotopic composition and mineralogy. Traditionally, they are divided into three categories: stony meteorites (or rocks), are mainly composed of silicate minerals; iron meteorites are composed of metallic iron-nickel; and, stony-iron meteorites contain both metallic and rocky material. Most meteorites are stony meteorites, classed as chondrites (about 86% of the meteorites that fall on Earth are chondrites) AND achondrites (about 8% of the meteorites that fall on Earth are achondrites). The rarest are stony-iron meteorites, (only 6% of meteorites are stony-iron meteorites). Meteorites are always named for the places they were found.

Throughout the centuries, meteors were seen as sacred objects by different cultures and civilizations. Spectacular meteorite showers and falls of meteorites have always captured the human imagination, creating fear and inspiration in everyone who has witnesses these event. Captured in records by the Chinese astronomers over 3,000 years ago, meteorites have shown up throughout history in paintings, drawn into ancient stone and as astrological omens, signs or prophecies. Recent theories have come to light that the Star of Bethlehem may have even been a meteorite (or comet).

Some of the most famous meteorites include The Hoba meteorite, the largest meteorite ever found. It still lies where it was found in 1920 at Hoba Farm, near Grootfontein in Namibia. The Sikhote-Alin meteorite fell in the Sikhote-Alin Mountains approximately 400 km from Vladivostock on the morning of February 12, 1947. The Orgueil meteorite landed near Orgueil in southern France on May the 14th 1864. This meteorite was classified as carbonaceous chondrite and it is the largest of only seven meteorites on that type ever found.

Campo del Cielo, which means, Field of the Sky, meteorites were first reported there in 1576. Carbon dating of charcoal wood fragments taken from beneath the meteorite, indicated it fell to earth around 2,200 BC. The crater field is 2 miles wide by 12 miles long with 26 craters. These meteorites hit the earth’s atmosphere traveling up to 150,000 miles per hour, landing in the Chaco Province of northern Argentina. These particular meteorites are composed of 93% iron, 6% nickel, 0.5% cobalt with trace minerals of phosphorus, iridum, gallium and germanium.

The Tunguska event, or Tunguska blast was an enormous explosion that occurred near the Tunguska River in Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia, June 30, 1908.The explosion is believed to have been caused by the exploding burst of a large meteoroid or comet 3-6 miles above the Earth’s surface.

Some of the most famous craters caused by meteorites include Barringer Meteor Crater, Odessa Meteor Crater, Wabar craters, and Wolfe Creek crater; iron meteorites are found in association with all of these craters. Currently, there are 170 known craters all over the Earth according to the University of New Brunswick, that is constantly maintaining and updating its database.

This greenish to brown-green variety of tektite was created with the heat of impact. It is believed that the meteorite melted with the earth’s surface creating a combination of extraterrestrial matter with that of mother earth! Some splattering of rock was believed to melt by the impact with earth’s atmospheric surface temperature and cooled while they were actually airborne. This rare stone is found in the Czech Republic, Germany, Moldova and Bohemia. It was named by A. Dufrnoy. The total amount of Moldavite scattered around the world is estimated at 275 tons. There are now only four moldavite mines that are in full operation in the Czech Republic. It is predicted that in less than ten years from now commercial Moldavite mining will come to an end. After this time, there will be virtually no appreciable amount of gem-grade Moldavite left in the ground.

This can also be experienced in a prayer group or even before a game or performance!

Cleansing & Charging Space Stones

~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.

~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy.  A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.

Crystal Cleansing: method 1 – 3 and method 5 – 8  (caution should be taken with moldavite ~ as these can easily sheer apart)

The Power of Color

Color plays a major role in determining how your crystal can help you.  A crystal’s color is due to its combination of minerals, which give it it’s own personality.  It contributes in what attracts you to it.  The psychological aspects of color determine how a crystal’s healing properties work.
