Despite being around forever, healing crystals continue to rise in popularity. Currently, they are trending on Instagram and Tik Tok. Depending on which ‘side’ of Tik Tok you’re on, the properties of healing crystals may be popping up on your For You Page. Moldavite is a rare and expensive healing crystal that can be found all over Tik Tok. 

What makes it so special? Moldavite is intended to cleanse all the negative energy present in someone’s life. It gets rid of any obstacles faced and brings you to be your highest self. Sounds great right? Well, for some, this has not been the case. If you were to search Moldavite on Tik Tok, videos of girls crying will appear. Many have claimed bad things happened to them because of the stone, such as losing their job, or even a loved one. 

Is it really worth the risk then? I decided to find out for myself. I’m biased because I have always had an attraction towards healing crystals. Since Moldavite is such a rare stone, I drove an hour to a metaphysical shop in the next state just to buy it. For about a month now, I’ve had the stone. To be completely honest, I forget it’s sitting in my room half the time.

But, when I take the time to think about it, this stone has truly changed various aspects of my life since having it. There were several people in my life who I knew were not good for me, but I could never muster up the courage to get rid of my relationships with them. It was not until getting the Moldavite stone that something happened where my relationships with these people ended without having to do anything myself. 

Healing crystals are often up for debate over whether they truly work or not. Despite always having an attraction towards them, I truly believe that they do work. Moldavite is a powerful stone that can do some damage, but I think it is worth the risk.
