Moldavite is a green or olive green glass formed in the Earth from meteorite impacts, and may be the basis for the fantasy creation of Superman’s Kryptonite.
Moldavite, discovered by Western geologists in 1786 and introduced that same year as a “chrysolites”. “Moldavite” derived from the town of Moldauthein (Czech: Týn nad Vltavou) – now in Bohemia(the Czech Republic), from where the first described pieces came from.
Moldavite has been associated with the legendary tone of the Holy Grail, and ’emerald’ said to have fallen from the sky, as well as a talisman for the healing of the Earth. Legend tells us that exposure to Moldavite stone was said to set the beholder upon the spiritual road to self discovery and personal enlightenment. The same could be told of the mysterious green gemstone moldavite.
Kryptonite is a material from the Superman mythos, specifically the ore form of a radioactive element from Superman’s home planet of Krypton. First mentioned in The Adventures of Superman radio show in June 1943, the material has been featured in a variety of forms and colors (each with its own effect) in DC Comics publications and other media, including feature films, television series, and novelty items such as toys and trading card sets.
There are many similarities between the magical abilities attributed to Moldavite that could be compared to Kryptonite.

I personally own the GENUINE-CZECH-MOLDAVITE-925-STERLING-SILVER-PENDANT-JEWELRY (click to view) and placed the pendant on a sterling silver 16 inch chain and I absolutely love it. It is a beautiful piece that compliments just about anything I wear. I let it set in my kitchen window sill for a few hours and wear. I immediately get a feeling of being excited for my day and find myself in a better mood all day. I get a lot of compliments on the necklace where ever I go, as it has a unique history and story it makes for a great conversation piece. I highly recommend owning a Moldavite stone and these listed in the article are the cheapest and best quality I can find. When people ask me what kind of stone is that I am wearing, I simply say its REAL Kryptonite and it always intrigues people every where I go. Its worth taking a look at Moldavite especially if you love unique rare items with an amazing history.
