Darwin Glass History Mythology: Darwin Glass was created when a meteorite impacted Tasmania approximately 770,000 years ago.  This makes Darwin Glass the youngest in the translucent glass Tektites family commonly know as ‘meteor splash glass’. This group also  includes Moldavite and Libyan Desert Glass.  It is quite rare for a splash tektite to form as it takes a special set of circumstances.  Tt is believed that the meteor comes down with such force that it creates a huge explosion which blends both the meteor and earth creating a natural glass.  

Darwinite Metaphysical Healing Properties: Darwin Glass is a wonderful stone that holds a lot of the same properties as Moldavite but is a much more gentle stone to work with and has a stronger connection to nature.  Like all Tektites, Darwin Glass is a great protection stone, particularly when you are having trouble picking up strong emotions from those around you and you require a shield.  Darwin Glass creates a protective bubble around you that allows you to remain peaceful and calm as you filter all the information you are being bombarded with and process it in an objective way. 

It also helps to open the Heart Chakra allowing you to create a loving relationship with everything around you, including people, animals, earth, and beyond.  Due to its lack of crystal structure, it gives unlimited flexibility and helps you to expand in all ways. Using this structure it helps to create a link between your Third Eye Chakra and your Forehead Chakra which allows you to open yourself to your higher self and other dimensional beings in order to expand your knowledge.  Darwin Glass has a strong connection to nature and allows you to see the importance of the natural world around you much more clearer.

When working with this stone I find it very balancing and calming with the words/Affirmation coming through.  Connect and Protect – I am one and in harmony with all things.

Question: Do I feel connected to nature?

Chakra – Heart Chakra, Third Eye, Forehead Chakra, and Crown Chakra

Darwinite Physical Healing – Wonderful when used with any heart issues as well as an issue of the lungs.
