The problem with Moldavite is its popularity.
Moldavite has exploded in blogs and on TikTok, and so everyone is on the hunt for some.
Due to how it's harvested from the earth, the Czech Republic has restricted mining so that it's more difficult and expensive. But…this helps maintain and protect the local environment (not a bad thing.)
This is probably why it's harder to find right now.
And then there’s the issue of fake Moldavite.
Because Moldavite was so sought after for jewelry when it was first discovered, a lot of fake specimens flooded the market. And with that flood, people wanted to cash in.
It can be quite hard to tell the difference, which makes the hunt for authentic Moldavite that much more difficult.
