5.20 – MYSTERIOUS RELICS (11.15.13)


Valley of the Kings, Egypt. November 1922. Archaeologist Howard Carter discovers King Tutankhamun’s tomb, containing a treasure trove of artifacts. Among them is King Tut’s magnificent breastplate with a yellow jewel as its centerpiece, a jewel created as the result of a meteorite impact.

“In Egyptian culture, there was a fascination with Libyan desert glass. And while it’s not actually a meteorite, Libyan desert glass is the product of a meteorite impact. Millions of years ago, an enormous meteorite crashed into what is today the Egyptian desert, and the heat and pressure of that impact melted the sand in the desert, forming a beautiful yellow impact glass.”

– Geoffrey Notkin (Author, Meteorite Hunting:
How to Find Treasure From Space)

“And it crystallizes the sand; it forms glass. And you get these wonderful, almost like jewel stones you get. And they clearly imagined these stones to be celestial, to have been created by the impact of a star. And therefore, they were given cosmic meaning.”

Humans have long had a fascination with meteorites and have fashioned many tools and spiritual objects from them. But why?

“There are many magical stories of meteors, meteorites and meteor showers. Aeschylus in Prometheus Unbound talks about an angry Zeus throwing rocks down at the Earth.  In the Aeneid, Virgil speaks of meteors. He describes a meteor shower as indicating Troy is about to fall. Such folk beliefs about meteors, shooting stars, meteorites were common in the ancient world, where, clearly, a piece of stone from the heavens is worshipped as a divine item.”

“The reason why they were so important was because they inherently had the power of the gods in them because they were already forged in the Universe and they descended from the sky.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Meteoric gemstones like Libyan desert glass have been venerated throughout history. But one particularly mysterious green gemstone could be the most sought-after relic of all time.

“Moldavite is the name given to a green impact glass of extraordinary beauty and rarity that’s only found in one small region of the Czech Republic. It’s very old.”

– Geoffrey Notkin (Author, Meteorite Hunting:
How to Find Treasure From Space)

“Metaphysically, moldavite creates this strange pulsating energy field that amplifies human thoughts or intention. If you’re a loving or compassionate person, it will amplify that, or it can bring chaos if your thoughts and energy and emotions are chaotic.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

According to some legends, the Holy Grail, the cup from which Jesus and his apostles drank during the Last Supper, was carved from a green gemstone that had fallen to Earth from the heavens.

“It is said that there was discord in the heavens involving Lucifer, and a stone dropped. It was a stone that at one time had been the center of Lucifer’s crown when he was an important angel. It dropped to Earth. It was then a piece of Heaven on Earth and had great power and was greatly venerated. It was carved into the Holy Grail, which was not made of metal but of this beautiful emerald, a precious stone from Heaven.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

Could the green gemstone that supposedly fell from Lucifer’s crown have been made not of emerald but of moldavite? Perhaps more evidence can be found in the legends of another sacred stone that fell from the sky more than 4,000 miles away.

Yumbulakang Palace, Southern Tibet. Here, according to legend, the 28th king, Lha Thothori Nyantsen, obtains a magical jewel called Cintamani. It is said to be one of four revered relics that fell from the sky in a chest.

“The Cintamani Stone is a fascinating myth that could well have meteorite associations. It describes a jewel that’s meant to have enormous properties that it can bestow upon its owner, and there are legends that some of the greatest warriors and leaders in all of history, including King Solomon, owned this jewel, that it was passed from one great ruler or leader to another.”

– Geoffrey Notkin (Author, Meteorite Hunting:
How to Find Treasure From Space)

“In both Hindu and Buddhist tradition there are stories relating to a so-called wishing jewel. And it wielded great power. It had a-a connection between this world and the next, that it could be used to interact not just with other worlds but the center of the Universe itself.”

– Andrew Collins (Author, Gateway to Atlantis),
(The Cygnus Mystery), (Beneath the Pyramids),
(Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods)

“It is said that whoever possessed the Cintamani stone was able to control destiny, that every wish was granted. Now, a stone or an object which is able to change reality, truly that is something which is a piece of technology, and how our ancestors got this is a gigantic question mark, which fortunately our ancestors have answered for us. Their answer is that this came from the sky, that it was given to us by the gods, and that it played a role in this exchange between us and the divine.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Could the legends of the Cintamani stone be based on fact? If so, might this otherworldly stone, as well as other sacred and mysterious relics, forge a connection between mankind and extraterrestrial forces? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and believe the ultimate proof can be found in one of the most sacred objects in the world.

Mecca, Saudi Arabia. 50 miles from the Red Sea, this is Islam’s holiest city. It was here in 2000 BC. that Muslims believe the prophet Abraham built the Kaaba, a cube-shaped structure that draws millions of pilgrims each year. But just what is it about this building that is so sacred? And why do so many people line up to touch it?

“On the eastern side of the Kaaba is a meteorite stone which is embedded in the corner of the Kaaba. Now, according to Muslim belief, this meteorite stone was sent from heaven to Adam and Eve. And that stone was used to build the first temple. And this really makes Mecca the most holy place to Muslims.”

    – Robert Mullins, Ph.D. (Archaeologist)

“Muhammad himself threw out all of the other gods, the deities and statues. But he retained the one strange the black stone, the extraterrestrial object that’s still worshipped today at Mecca. So, you have to wonder why Muhammad specifically chose that object as part of his religion that would remain, as part of the Muslim faith. It would have to be some memory of an extraterrestrial event.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Might the black stone of Mecca and other sacred relics really possess great power? Could they be gateways, not only to ancient knowledge, but to other worlds and even other dimensions? Perhaps the answer can be found by examining what many believe to be the most sacred and powerful of all the Earth’s relics – the cross of Jesus Christ.
