The word ‘tektite’ is from the Greek word tēktos which means ‘molten’. They are formed when a meteorite hits the Earth and the high energy impact from the meteorite vaporises the Earth. The high temperature explosion throws up molten material into the sky and then rapidly cools as it falls to the ground. The explosive birth and cooling of tektites gives them a high frequency that is a strong transformational energy that helps one raise their vibrational level when used.
Vietnam tektites are part of the Indochinite strewn field found in Southeast Asia. The Vietnam tektites that we have are high quality tektites from the North-Western region of Vietnam around Cao Bằng and Hà Giang. These tektites are mostly black in appearance and were formed during a meteor impact around 700,000 years ago. They come in a variety of primary shapes such as disks, balls, dumbbells, drops, as well as fragments such as sticks and other shapes. Prices may vary by shape as some shapes are much rarer than others.
Vietnam tektites are a stone of expansion and transformation. Vietnam tektites have a strong transformational energy but are less ungrounding compared to Moldavite. Moldavite is considered the most beautiful tektite, however Vietnam tektites are much larger, thicker so less fragile, and more affordable. They can be suitable to use as a palm stone, for meditation, in crystal grids and as a desk stone.
All tektite varieties harmonise with each other and can magnify their effects of each other. Vietnam tektites can quicken and amplify the awakening from Moldavite, strengthen the manifesting powers of Libyan Desert Glass tektite, and speed up opening of the heart and connection to nature of Darwinite.
When working with Vietnam tektites, you can use the affirmation: I am open to transformation at every level of my life. I choose to expand my consciousness to higher frequencies and connect with helpful beings on higher planes.
