Hi list,

I saw a seller selling a Moldavite as a "great channeling crystal". Aren't
Moldavites a type of impactite glass, and thus lacking crystal structure

Also, I was checking in an old geology dictionary, and it mentions that
Moldavites are a type of ozocerite (also spelled ozokerite). A mineral
paraffin wax (aka mineral wax, fossil wax, earth wax & native paraffin).
Has anyone heard of ozocerite and know how they are (were) associated with
