Philippinites are a special type of Tektites (more about their fascinating effects can be found on the “Tektite” subpage). Their shapes and forms are simply captivating. Anda Philippinites have an appearance similar to Moldavites and a stronger Energetic effect than other Tektites. The Energy of these Stones is released somewhat differently to the Energy of the Indochinites (Tektites). They are the best protection against all negative. We first came into contact with them through local collectors on our Association’s expedition to the Philippines. On the island of Anda, where the most Beautiful specimen of Philippinites can be found, we were asking the locals about them for a couple of days from morning to night. Locals engaged in agriculture find the Stones when they prepare their rice fields for planting, and after the monsoon rain washes them to the surface. Since fewer and fewer Stones are found every year, we had some difficulty finding a small collection. Anda Philippinites are very rare nowadays because in the past, private collectors bought up all of them due to their unique beauty.
Bicol Philippinites can be found in the northern part of the Philippines, where local security is more lax. They are found and excavated by divers, who search for gold in water mines near the beach using only compressors, suction devices or their bare hands and bags. The water mines are located as much as 30 metres below sea level. The gold divers say that gold is found where the Tektites are and that is why they always follow Tektites. Their work is one of the most dangerous ones in the world.
Due to their typical round shape and incredible channels, Rizal Tektites are a natural wonder (they were named after a Rizal Province where the first Tektite was rediscovered in 1926 - today the specific round disc shape is named Rizal Tektite or Rizalite). They are found all over the Philippines and are classified into Anda Rizal Philippinites and Bicol Rizal Philippinites.
Philippinites and Tektites originate from the same Asteroid impact approx. 890,000 years ago. The different forms were caused by the direction in which the Asteroide Silicon projectiles flew. Philippinites were ejected with high angle almost vertically towards outer Space, while Indochinites and Australites flew at a lower angle at the speeds up to 7 kilometres per second and covered a very large distances.
