The word tektite comes from the greek word “tektos” which means molten. Whether the meteorite explodes in the air or upon impact, tektites come from what is thrown out from the explosive force.
Tektite stone is found in what are known as strewn fields. The concept of a strewn field is basically that when the meteorite impacted the earth, the meteorite pieces, along with other assorted debris are “strewn” out from the impact location. Usually it is in molten form from the high heat. These strewn fields tend to move outward in the direction of impact, ie if the meteorite impacted from the west, the strewn field will stretch to the east of the impact area.
Due to the tremendous size of the strewn fields, however, it is often hard to know exactly where the tektite stone originated from. Strewn Fields can reach out up to 1000 miles from the impact site.
There are 4 well known strewn fields on earth and each is home to its own specific type of stone. The North American strewn field reaches from Georgia to Texas and is home of the Georgia Tektites and the Bediasite Tektites. The Moldavite strewn field is in Europe, The Ivory Coast strewn field is on the Ivory Coast and the Australasian strewn field reaches from southern Australia up to southern China.
The color depends on a number of factors and range from an almost gold color, to a greenish shade to various dark greens, grays and black. Unless sliced very thinly, most tektites are opaque, however the Australasian tektites are sometimes known to have a goldish color on the thinner edges when seen with a back light.
Also known as the telepathy gemstone because tektite stone is known to increase psychic abilities, especially the ability to communicate with others at a distance through telepathy. Many believe that by meditating with one, your ability to communicate telepathically will increase in regards to the amount of time it remains in your personal energy field.
Experimentation is being done by placing two similar size and shape pieces within a crystal vortex for varying amounts of time ranging from 1 week to 1 year. The resulting charged pieces are then considered a mated pair and are use by two people at distant locations to communicate via telepathy. Should you decide to continue this research, it is important that you keep accurate records of your experimentation which should include, date, times, local weather at both locations, how each experimenter is feeling prior to and after the trials and any additional information that might factor into the results.
It is thought that by carrying a one in your pocket or as a necklace so that it stays within the aura on a regular basis, that your psychic abilities will be increased. This possibly has something to do with it’s ability to increase energy. They are also known as good luck stones, especially in India where it is considered a sacred stone. Simply keep one in your pocket or purse or wear it on a string around your neck to enjoy the benefits.

This can be accomplished by placing the one directly on the patient’s chakras one at a time or by slowly moving the it above the patients chakras and sweeping the blocked energy out to the side and away from the patient.
Adds power to any type of magic as it provides a direct connect with the universal energies. It can be placed on an altar while performing magic, added to a mojo bag, or a series of them can be used in a crystal vortex to charge objects. It can help remove fear from people and situations making it a possible piece to help those suffering from depression brought on by fear.
When someone is ill whether from a major illness or just a bout of the flu, placing a one within their auric field can help to strengthen the body to fight off the illness. It is believed by some to help connect your personal thoughts and energies with alien beings from other planets.
